Y is for yellY is for yell

Toddlers yell, especially when they don’t get their way (case in point: my 3-year old having a meltdown this morning because he insisted on eating crackers before getting dressed). I like to think the concept of yelling is not bad: toddlers are not yet emotionally-mature enough to manage their feelings like adults do. So their frustration comes out as a YELL.

Sometimes, small business owners would like to yell too. But we (hopefully!) find a way to channel those emotions into something less, err, loud. Like taking a few deep breaths or hitting the gym.

How do you channel your “yelling” emotions?

    Yelling is a way of letting those wild emotions loose, but we have to be careful not to hurt others with it . . . which is something that a toddler usually doesn’t get yet.

    So true. As adults, we know not to do that, and can hopefully teach our kids the same. Thanks for your comment.

    So true. As adults, we know how to do that and hopefully pass that on to our children. Thanks for your comment.
