Do you ever have one of those days when you feel like you just might lose it?  You know the kind…where everything seems to be going wrong and everyone needs you right this minute!

Or maybe you’ve been home with sick kids for two weeks straight and you just can’t think straight anymore.  Or maybe…you’ve been trapped because of a blizzard.

I’m no stranger to those days.  Those are the days when I head to the pantry for a minute to collect my thoughts so that I can stay calm.  Mommy time outs – they work.

Yelling happens.  It feels terrible and leaves parents feeling guilty, but it happens.  The could have’s and should have’s creep in and leave even the most confident parent longing for a do-over.

The good news is that you can make little changes that make a big difference.  Stop by EverydayFamily for a few tips on decreasing the yelling in your house.

See you there!

  2. It happens to me ALWAYS, when I just feel like I’ll just explode. My remedy- a few minutes with myself and some deep breaths. It always works… Every time!
