Banning the banshee!!


So I know it’s now the 3rd of January, and generally resolutions are meant to be kept on the 1st, but I have made a decision, I will stop hollering/screaming/shouting at the kids!

Firstly, it will save my throat!

Secondly, I have noticed how Lil Princess nowadays raises her voice rather a lot, and I guess children learn what they see, and I am so guilty of this!

There was a time when I was such a calm person, with the patience of a saint…then I had kids of my own!!!!

And yes, standing in the middle of the brother/sister war zone, sometimes the only way to be heard is to shout…. But no, I must control my urges!

So from today, I will try so hard to listen, and reason with the two monkeys in a cool, calm and collected way, before resorting to the banshee style that I tend to favour, unfortunately!

I will keep you posted with my endeavours to be quieter!

(So far today, I did really good, until I was trying to type my last post, and they were being little s***s, so slight volume control -or no volume control -was exercised…! Oops! Still. Baby steps, baby steps!)

    One step at a time. My daughter in law writes her 11 year old twins notes and sticks them front of their faces instead of saying a thing and that ha been working well for her.

    They’re 12 now, and quite a handful!

    Oh, man I wished I read this 30 minutes ago. One of my twins is driving me to yelling right now. I’ll stop and send him to his room now. 😀
