Does yelling at our children work?

Mandy O Connor, 42

I have been yeller, bargainer, pleader and a briber to my children. I sometime still am. I don’t want to be one anymore. Some of my best lines include “If you don’t come down for your dinner there will be no TV for a month”, “Put your coat on and i’ll give you chocolate”). I created this drawing to remind myself that our children just want to be like us and although perfection isn’t possible I want to do better. I want to be a better parent.
