How It Damages The Parent Child Relationship

Yelling does damage to the parent child relationship because it uses that relationship as a weapon. The parent themselves become the consequence. We have talked numerous times how important it is to stay removed from the consequence. We do this so that the child will learn it is their behavior that is earning the consequence. It’s not just on the parents whim. When we yell this is hard to distinguish and can ultimately cause anger in the child.
The other reason why yelling is an ineffective consequence is that a child can learn to tune it out. In the long run it may not deter negative behavior at all.
These are the reasons we must come up with a plan for discipline using effective consequences in order to train our children.
