Put a thick rubberband around your wrist. Everytime you yell, pop it. It will help. Behavior modification is strong.

It's hard. I lose my temper too. I find that getting a break from being mom helps a lot. Drop them off at daycare or with a grandparent or whoever you can rely on and take a few hours a week to yourself. Today I'm dropping my kids at daycare & going grocery shopping. It's just a little time away to breathe & actually miss them. I also find that keeping them busy with art & science projects really helps too. Good luck. They test limits & patience all the time. We have to try our best to set the right example for them.
Once I felt I was getting out of control with the yelling, so for two weeks anytime I felt like shouting I knelt down & whispered in their ear. It was very effective for all of us. And I still do it when my temper is running high.
