This Months Gabby Mom Book Review:
“Yelling: The Cause, The Casualty, The Cure.”
Ouch! This one stings! Many years ago I used to be that yeller and if I’m not on guard I can still fall into that trap. It was how I motivated, disciplined, corrected..let’s just say it was my mode of operation for getting all parenting accomplished…if you want to call it that. I had grown up this way and so really that’s all I had known. I would see the harm it would cause and yet I felt powerless to change. I had no tools for this kind of change except the Lord and His Word.
How I wish I would have had someone like Lorrie to come along side of me and say “I’ve been there and done that and here’s how I got out of it”
In Lorrie’s unique way and with humility and honesty and gift for leadership, she is like that Mom that takes us by our hand to help lead us out of our despair and hopelessness. To help teach us to be the Mom that God wants us to be. Lorrie uses humor and directness, not mincing words and candy coating our sin.
Lorrie says: “Look at it this way, if it isn’t life threatening, if the house is not ablaze, if it is not time to call 911 or if the child you are yelling at is not a half a mile away, then yelling is the wrong choice and not worth the cost.” Ouch again! LOL
