Have you ever felt like this? Screaming or yelling at the top of your lungs because nothing seems to be going right? The baby just dumped his food all over the floor and now the dog is eating it? Your 4 year old is coloring on the piano keys? And your oldest, well he decided it was time to build something with the legos and you just know you are going to find them in the middle of the night with your bare feet.
Ah, the joys of motherhood! But do the screaming and yelling make you feel any better? NO! (there I yelled online) Actually, I don't know about you, but I feel a million times worse than when I don't yell. But no matter how much I try, I can't seem to curb the yelling.
So, when the Gabby Mom's review team was given this assignment, I practically jumped out of my seat! I do not like yelling. I do not like it Sam I am, I do not like yelling. It gives me a headache plus I know my kids have picked up on it and they yell back at me or each other.
I knew something had to give. I always felt like I spent more time screaming than talking to my kids and enjoying my time with them.
Lorrie has always had such a way of reaching me and I know other moms. She is gentle in her approach and cares about the ladies she is reaching out to like you and me. I know that after reading other books, magazine articles, I often feel worse and no where near like I am going to be able to fix what needs fixing. But after reading several of Lorrie's books & magazines I feel uplifted and have a plan of action to take.
Reading "Yelling - The Cause, The Casualty & The Cure", left me feeling equipped to face the battle ahead. It's not just for my sake, but for that of my children and husband. Lorrie offers 11 steps and she always to make sure that we never forget the most important thing. God. The relationship with our Heavenly Father always takes first place. The relationship is never on the backburner. I am so grateful that Lorrie always puts Him in the right place for us.
If you feel that you just can't keep control of the yelling, screaming or whatever term you prefer to call it, I highly recommend reading this book. Lorrie offers simple suggestions that will definitely make a change. I know that I am looking forward to less yelling and screaming in our household.
