It is quite telling that my wife sent me this invaluable article. She and I have been together now twenty-one years, married for almost eleven. She comes from a family where yelling was endemic and I believe that much of that behavior is mimicked by children later in life.
Fortunately, she never fell into that trap and we have been very diligent in rooting it out in our own behavior. End result, like the author of this article, is a more emotionally stable child who doesn't stand in fear when making those inevitable mistakes, yet embraces conversation.
So, I ask all of you to please read the following article and reflect on your own behavior. Then, if you wish, please share below.
