What are they yelling?  Some kids don't seem to react unless you raise the volume.  So I wouldn't necessarily report just for yelling.  There would have to be verbal abuse.

Nope. Yelling is something I do way too much. I'm working on it. Both boys have "selective hearing" and the oldest will hyper focus on something when his medication wears off. It's like the world ceases to exist for him. I hate being ignored. I'll ask two or three times nicely and then I'm done. Or they'll be playing too loud, wrestling, etc and yelling is the only way for me to actually get their attention.
I'm buying a football whistle to help me stop yelling. Lol

No, yelling isn't a reason to believe kids are in danger.

God, I hope not. Sometimes my kids only listen when I yell. I make sure the windows are closed so cps-trigger happy "perfect" mommies like you don't call. You've really never yelled at your children? And if you did would you want someone calling Cps on you for it? C'mon.
