As an adul if some one yelled at me, I turned a deaf ear. I have a theory that kids also do the same thing. I did it the other way as when I got soft' voiced my toddlers knew Mom was upset, watch out. My mom never yelled at me but my dad often did. I maintain yelling just increases your anger and you do not get your feelings across.Butt slow down 'and be deadly quiet and upset. The kids will listen then.

I agree yelling doesn't do much good at all. When I get quiet my kids know they better listen.

Yelling at people is not a smart way to deal with the problem

Over the years of teaching I learned that yelling has a diminishing impact. The more you often you yell, the less effective it is. My most effective way of letting my students know they've crossed the line is to stare silently at them until they begin to fidget and feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. I can use it on one student, or the whole class. Then, when they've corrected their behavior, I go on teaching like nothing happened.

I've never had children of my own, so I'm not sure what I would have done that might have worked. But I know that whenever someone yelled at me, it only made me cry. I do freely admit, however, that I was a "problem" child. Mom always said that if I'd had children, they probably would have been just the same so I would know what she went through! hahaha

plus if you repeat yourself a lot, kids learn they can ignore you, better to be clear once, and then let the consequences fall where they fall, they will learn to listen better

I never yelled at my kids. I just did not talk to them until I was calm and they were calm.
