Every mom wants to know “How can I stop yelling at my kids?”.
This quintessential question really means:
1.) How do I get them to obey without yelling?
2.) Why do I get so angry I yell?
Just tell me how to stop, and I will – if I can get those kids to obey!
Which in translation means: give me the fast version cause ain’t nobody got time for a slow one.

How can I stop yelling at my kids?
Here’s the deal – you can’t “just stop yelling”.
That’s like telling an alcoholic to “just stop drinking” or a smoker to “Just stop lighting up”, or a glutton to “just stop eating buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken”.
You can’t “just stop” anything.
There has to be an deeper, inner change.
Moms want that deeper inner change in the form of a quick fix. I know because that’s how I felt!
I parented four children who were born with carnal innards. In fact, I am a parent born with carnal innards.
And I yelled sometimes. Even screamed.
The guilt was gut-clenching, and each time I promised myself, “I will never do that again.”
And then in the heat of the moment, what did I do?
It became a viscous cycle:
resolve never to yell again
We moms beat ourselves up over repeated failures, and I was no exception to that rule.
Every parent has a stage of parenting that seems more difficult to handle than another.
Mine was toddlerhood.
So sometimes all of it.
Perspective on the toddler stage
When parenting toddlers, you have to keep some things in mind.
1.) They don’t grasp full concepts yet
2.) They can’t wait to get their way
3.) They need to be told over and over and over and over and over
4.) YOU are the adult
Perspective on the teen stage
Toddlers are difficult to parent.
Then again, so are teens.
Numbers 2-4 still apply.
So what’s a mama to do when she can’t control her yelling but wants to stop? She knows God doesn’t want her to yell and she feels guilty afterwards – yet keeps repeating the process.
The answer is not so cut and dry.
Well, yes and no.
The simple answer is to keep bringing it to Jesus.
But there are key Biblical and parenting concepts one must grasp to get to the yell-free part.
Enter The Yell-Free Blueprint.
