“Parenting isn’t about control.
Parenting is about guidance.
Parenting is about structure, limits, and consistency.
Parenting is about empathy.

Yelling happens when stress is high and emotions are heated.
Yelling happens when we can’t seem to get what we want, and we feel like we are out of options.
