Parenting Skills

Every. Single. Day., I say to Shirley, "Don't yell at Mama."
Yet I always say it again the next day.
Is it me?

um, no. through the years drop a penny into a jar for each time you say that--you can retire on it.

I don't know? Maybe try positive reinforcement? Instead of "Don't yell at Mama" maybe try, "Talk nice to Mommy please"
That outta work.

ditto--show your children how to behave--they don't know right behavior until you teach it to them. This is how I want you to talk to me... Now you try... Good Job, clap,clap, clap.

I've tried to tell Courtney to quit pooping and spitting up, but she just tunes me out.
