Learning to control that anger could very well save your kid's life. Here's what you need to know...
Does your child sometimes seem to be too much to handle?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the rest of life's hurdles and find yourself fighting to stay ahead, let alone find a spare moment for some much-needed relaxation?
Are the days of cuteness and blissful relationships long past?
The bills are piling up, the workload is getting heavy, and spending time with your spouse has become a nonexistent happening. You may not even be able to remember the last time you met up with some friends for a drink.
According to statistics, 73% of parents say parenting is the biggest struggle in their life. On top of that, in order to cope with these stressors, 90% of parents claim to yell at their kids.
But what effect does this actually have on your little ones? Is it even an effective strategy?
In Am I Yelling?, you'll discover:
• The psychology of anger and why yelling is not the most productive outlet
• What to do when your child is the angry one, and why remaining calm is imperative
• How to learn your child's language so that you can understand and anticipate their actions
• A step-by-step guide to developing your own emotional intelligence and why this could save your child's life
• How to recognize your misdirected anger so that your child doesn't get hurt by something that doesn't even involve them
• Groundbreaking insight into how you can manage your anger, even if you haven't succeeded with this in the past
• What you can do to fix an instance of yelling and why this is important for your child's development
... and so much more.
Parenting is hard enough without always having to second-guess if you're doing the right thing. Yelling has it's time and place and can be effective in certain instances, but sometimes expressing your frustration this way simply does more harm than good.
It is far from impossible to calm your irritation ...
WINNER, 2014 BEST KINDLE BOOK for nonfiction. Did you and your parent ever keep a secret that lasted a lifetime? When Hanna Perlstein and her mother, Sidonia, come to Springfield, Massachusetts from a displaced persons camp after World War II, they know no one in America. With no other family, except each other, they build a world that revolves around Sidonia's extraordinary talent with a needle and thread to create beautiful garments while Hanna serves as her dutiful model. As Sidonia becomes well-known in western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut for her remarkable sewing talent, she continues to keep her inner secrets about her past hidden not only from her daughter but from everyone else. Determined to craft a life of pride, self-reliance and perseverance, Sidonia teaches her daughter to "stand up straight" in fashion and in life. Sidonia's Thread uses sewing metaphors to tell the tale of these two women as though stitched together like a handmade garment. Why did Sidonia keep these significant life secrets, and why was Hanna so afraid to ask about them? When Sidonia moves to elderly housing, Hanna steals some of her old letters and photographs hoping to find clues to her paternity, her mother's reclusive behavior, and her heritage. Combined with a trip to her mother's Hungarian homeland and a phone conversation with her father, Hanna's surprising discoveries inspire a revised view of her life with her mother, replacing her conflicting emotions toward her mother with true reverence.
