I admit, I yell too much, wishing I could take it back immediately. It makes me feel absolutely terrible each time it happens. I have yelled at Parker before and looked at him and could see the fear. Of course, I yell and he starts crying. The crying and the fear in his eye's breaks my heart, yet I still find myself yelling. What causes me to lose it? Was it because I told him to pick up his toys and he would not listen? Was it because he would not sit still so I could dress him? Was it because he took off running in a parking lot where cars were coming? Was it because he made such a mess with his snacks? Could I have handled each situation different that would not require me to yell? YES, I could have. I now know that I’m not along in this and there is hope for me.
