    That is exactly what I thought!

    I never yelled at my kids when they were babies/toddlers.

    But as they have gotten older, they just push and push and push in different ways and I am only human and yes, I sometimes snap. They drive me bonkers!

    Yeah I never yelled at jasper as a baby or toddler.

    When he was a baby he couldn't make me angry but now he's talking and understands me it gets under my skin. Like "mummy can I have bickie?"

    "Sorry we don't have any, we'll get some from the shop later"
    "Can I have a bickie?"
    "I just said we don't have any, we'll go to the shop when daddy gets home and get some"
    ".....I want a bickie?"
    "We don't have any"
    "I want a bickie"
    "We don't have any jasper"
    "I want a bickie"
    "Why can you have a bickie?"
    "They're at the shops"
    "Yep & we'll get some later"
    "Oh.....but I want a bickie now"

    *any repeat until we get to*

    ....."I. WANT. A. BICKIE!!!!!!"

    "WE DON'T HAVE ANY!!!!!!!"

    Hence - why I run away to cool off because we get stuck in a loop until I pop. Throw in some night's I only get 1.5 hours sleep good times.

    Yep, only one child here, but she is about to turn 9 and at one stage I had 5 living with me and worked a 30hr week. I think you get to know them and know what works and some people are yellers, some are not. When I mentioned child safety, it was about more than just yelling, it was overall violent behaviour, having the police called on them multiple times each week. Now they have a baby they are both medicated and have not et had major dramas. They turned on me instead.

    Yes OP I yell. I try not to though because I don't like it. But I won't lie I lose my temper and I yell..... I am quitting smoking again at the moment (day 5 YAY me) and I have actually managed to keep my cool this time. I am just practicing deep breathing when I feel that frustration or anger rising. The think I hate most about yelling at my babies is what I am teaching them. So I will continue to try and keep cool but I am not confident enough in myself to say I will never yelll again...

    I fall into that category (I have one child who is 2), but I don't agree with the statement, as I believe that some people are just not 'yellers'.

    I can't think of a time in my life when I have ever yelled at anyone. As I said earlier, I wasn't raised in a household where anyone yelled, and DH and I have never yelled at each other. I honestly can't think of an occasion where anyone has yelled at me either - even ex boyfriends... For me it would be a bit of a deal breaker.

    I'm not criticising anyone who does yell. But some people seem to think it comes naturally to everyone, and for me it never has. The angrier/ more upset I get the quieter I tend to get. That's what comes naturally for me.

    I am the same. I just don't yell. My mum did but Dad hardly ever did and I follow his style a lot more.

    Yes I yell at my almost 3 year old DD and hate that I do it. She just makes me so mad when she pushes and hits DS constantly. I'm trying to change my ways as I don't believe yelling helps at all.

    When I do yell at her she just looks at me and tells me to "calm down". LOL

    Mine are only 1 and 2, but I've had a large range of high behavioural needs foster kids in my care over the years.

    Even if I wanted to yell at them I wasn't allowed to.

    My dad has yelled at me once and it's a vivid memory, he lost his patience with my brother and I bickering. He had better alternatives to yelling.

    I'm not saying *everyone* should or does yell I just think its silly to compare parenting styles without bringing the family dynamics into it. I'm sure if my boys weren't spirited children who harmed each other what seems like constantly some days I would have very little need to yell either.

    I'm curious to know, if another child was going to harm your child would you yell out or would you let it happen while running over to them? Sorry but if my child is in danger I'm going to yell at whoever is about to harm them.
