Sharing: The Important Thing About Yelling

In tomorrow’s WheeledWords post to do with Fathering (no more hints), a list therein makes two particular points — one directly, other implicitly — about the art of yelling. Rachel Macy Stafford, author of Hands Free Mama, in “The Important Thing About Yelling” (http://huff.to/1driO2c), bests my winsome attempts, getting right to the point:

[Yelling] shuts down the communication; it severs the bond; it causes people to separate — instead of come closer.

I recommend this article to us all in our quests to be better Dads and Moms. Thanks to my friend, Val Holback, for pointing this article my way.

Enjoy.
