    Yep! Sure do. When my boys are endangering each other or hurting each other and I can't reach them before it will happen I will yell at them. I am also fallible and I yell out of frustration or anger over something being done for the millionth time that day I always apologize.

    Yes, sometimes but not at my youngest (19 months)....but I always apologise because to me, it doesn't feel right.

    Yes I have yelled a lot at my ds in the past. Lots of reasons why....I hate that I do it.

    Lately things have been a lot better and I am not yelling at all really.

    Generally, no i don't yell. On the odd occasion yes, I have, but as a rule, no. I get down to his level and talk on a stern way, explaining what he did "wrong" and what I would like him to do instead.

    Yep I do. I'm from a family of yellers, LOL. DS is not at all affected by my stern mummy voice which has always worked on other people's kids so sometimes I yell. I think it has so much to do with individual temperament, I would never yell at a kid when a quiet 'i mean business' voice will do the job. But in our family, if you want to be heard at all let alone listened to, you yell.

    ETA just before i was yelling about the safety switch tripping again on one of our circuits (old flat not built for modern living, 3 heaters and a dryer running and it cracks it) I was yelling about it not being good enough and we have to figure out some way to re-configure our power, and there's DS behind me waving his arms and yelling 'not good enough, mummy!'

    You know what keeps me from yelling? I imagine me being a Giant, my child a teeny tiny innocent person who is just trying to learn about the world.

    That, plus there's no way I will be known as "the lady down the street who yells at her kids"

    I totally yell at DD. When she hits, plays up and I've just had enough (not usually in public)

    I don't really care if it's bad parenting, being a mum is hard and I'm certainly not perfect.

    Rarely unless i am super dooper cranky. I try not to yell as he is very sensitive and it really upsets him.

    I do at my older kids occasionally mainly when they are yelling and fighting and I need to be heard over them.

    I wouldn't yell at a 17 month old. I have a 2 year old and do not yell at her. I say a firm no and re direct. I agree with your DH. Sorry.
