I'm torn with the article.
They resort to reminding, nagging, timeout, counting 1-2-3 and quickly realize that those strategies don’t work to change behavior. In the absence of tools that really work, they feel frustrated and angry and raise their voice.Yes, that is EXACTLY how it works. I am speaking for myself but I get so TIRED of no one listening to me. I remind. I nag. We have a timeout chair. I COUNT and they even count WITH ME!!!! I then get frustrated and RAISE MY VOICE!!!!
It gets their attention. They know, "Okay, moms had enough. I better do what she said!"
Half the time they don't even think that. I am ignored. SHRUG.
As parents we can only do the best we can at any given time. We do what works. If you have to raise your voice then you have to raise your voice. Enough said.
