Are you a yeller? UPDATE

My mom never yelled growing up! I seriously can't remember my mom ever raising her voice at us! Me...I feel like I'm always raising my voice. I hate it. I want to work on it big time and make it stop. It is my goal for the year. Are you a yeller? Was your mom?

UPDATE:
I didn't yell at the kids at all today! I was so proud of myself. Everything went so smooth and happy, I can't believe it. My goal is to keep this up!

 I do yell after I have repeated myself half a million times, otherwise, no. Their dad is a horrible yeller and it has absolutely no effect on them.

Yes my mom is a yeller, but mostly because she can't hear well.

Not really. I do resort to it when I've asked nicely a bazillion times and they pretend to not hear me.

I don't remember my mom yelling much. I yell sometimes, but I try not to.

I yell after I've told them more than 3x's to do the same thing over and over. I hate that I yell though. My mom wasn't a yeller.

Yes, I am.  I'm Italian though, so I think we are just generally loud.  Sometimes it will sound like I'm yelling when I'm just trying to get my point across.

 My mom was a yeller and I hated it. She will yell first, think second. I try really, really hard not to yell but I have my moments.
