I have read several articles recently that I think are worth sharing here. I hope you’ll take the time and click over to their websites and read them because I found them to be interesting.
The first one talks about how to stop yelling at your kids. Interesting, huh? The take-away here is that you are responsible for yourself. Your kids cannot make you yell at them even though you may be using them as the excuse for your yelling. Instead of yelling, quietly and calmly, go to them, get down face to face and calmly talk to them/correct them. Read about it here: One Simple Tip to Help You Stop Yelling
This next one reminds me of some of what we read in Bringing Up Bebe. Do you have trouble with your child(ren) interrupting you when you are talking with a friend, on the phone, or some other situation? In this post, Kate @ an everyday story, shares a great tip on how to teach your children to show you respect by not interrupting you and gives you a way to let them know you know they need your attention. Seriously, go check this one out. Teach Your Child Not to Interrupt in One Simple Step
This last one reiterates what I’ve mentioned the last couple of weeks about being a good example to your kids. Crystal Paine over at Money Saving Mom shares how her son is learning about finances and a budget by what is modeled in their home. It is a good reminder.
I hope these tips are helpful to you. I wish I’d have found them when my kids were young.
Until next time, God bless,
