Today I have the best parenting tip ever! You ready?
When you just want to scream, when everybody’s acting insane, and you just want to go nuts – whisper.
Whisper. Nobody’s gonna expect it.
If you just whisper, then everyone’s going to be quiet. Everyone has to figure out what it is that you’re saying. Instead of screaming, you can say: “I’m feeling very, very upset right now.” And then the kids come in, get close, and focus.
Just whisper. Talk about what you’re feeling as a whisper. That automatically, energetically, completely changes the whole environment that you’re in.
