Raising Your Voice With Kids Doesn’t Work
A new study suggests yelling at young teenagers can have the same psychological effects as hitting them – including depression, anxiety and low self esteem.
Parenting expert Dr. Caroline Ievers-Landis suggests parents should give themselves a timeout.
Having the other parent who’s maybe not pushed to the limit as much maybe step in a little bit.
Another tip she says is use more carrot and less stick.
If you want them to get ready for school faster, maybe promise a movie. Learning to negotiate and keep your cool can make the teen years so much less stressful for everyone.
