Could you go an entire year without yelling?

I loved this blog! So many things she said were so true.

At this point, I could probably go a year mostly because my kids are still so young that yelling never would help. But I could see yelling stuff like the get back in bed example she gave when they're more independent. So then I think it would be much more of a challenge for me.

. Thanks .hOOdihoo.this. for another beautiful siggy!

That was really interesting! I think I'll try it. I try not to yell but I definitely slip up when I'm overwhelmed so I'm going to have to try this. I'll see if DH will do it with me!

Good points to remember! I have no idea if I could. In general I'm not a yeller, but I'm also not perfect.

I yell at A&L. UGH. I've never yelled at Jude---he's just not at the yelling age yet. I don't think I could go a year without yelling, sadly. I'm going to work on it.

I would love to be able to not yell but it would be HARD. I grew up in a yelling house. And it's now how I express frustration in the heat of the moment. And sometimes I feel like I need to "snap" Major out of a behavior and a quick yell does the trick. But boy do I have guilt about it, because I remember how being on the receiving end of it feels. DH and I are both yellers and have talked about stopping or making a real effort to do less of it. But stopping completely for a year would be a challenge.

I don't really yell in anger much. We're loud people so I think a lot of people would thing we're yelling when we're not. I've probably raised my voice at Daryn a handful of times this year. Never with Eli because he's too little.
