shout at the children

 It scares them

Imagine a giant with a strong and evil voice screaming at you. Are you scared? The child too. Especially if you have to defend yourself from this monster, and it is mom or dad, who must be protection and support.

Harmful to health

First on the list of consequences are stress and neurosis. Then come weight problems: like adults, children also tend to eat sweets because they are sad. The immune system also suffers from stress - children get sick more often. In addition, in children and adolescents, it affects the character, in students, it reduces their performance and concentration.


Undermines trust

You can love someone who regularly insults, insults, or scares you. Children are able to forgive us for many things. But to trust and reveal - hardly. It's just that fear is hard to reconcile with intimate conversations. That is why it is difficult to trust the one who can raise his voice and shout at you at any moment. And every time you will be afraid to tell about your secret - you just got a scream. That is why children share less and less with their parents and solve their problems on their own.


Creates wrong habits

Children who are accustomed to being spoken to in a high voice do not really listen in a calm voice and do not fall into quiet contemplation. Is it their fault if they are used to such a manner of communication? In addition, children often consider such behavior to be normal and patiently tolerate rudeness from friends and others.

He sets a bad example

"My son is rude to others and does not listen! My daughter answers me! You can't talk to them calmly - they have no respect! ”Yes, adults often complain about the rudeness of teenagers. And just as often they don't notice that they're actually imitating the big ones.

What to do if you are about to explode? Try to find another vent for your anger and teach this to the child as well. To say that you are angry or offended is more correct, though more complicated than just shouting.
