“PUT YOUR DISHES IN THE SINK!”
Yes, it is totally bad to yell at your kids. Especially over neglecting to clear their dishes from the table. I failed the Stop Yelling challenge at least 5 times today.
I am going crazy because I tell my kids with ADHD to do something a million times, and they don’t listen. I feel invisible except when they want food.
If the sweet scent of brownies wafts through out the house, you better believe they listen to me THE.FIRST.TIME when I tell them to sit at the table.
There is no excuse for me to have lazy listeners because I know the right way to help my children listen better.
I don’t need to tell them a million times, and then get fed up and scream at them. But I am human, and when I am tired or overwhelmed I neglect to use all my tricks in my parenting tool belt.
