Do you often find yourself losing your cool and yelling at
your kids? It happens to us all, but it doesn't have to. With Yell Less,
Love More you'll learn practical, simple solutions to keep you focused
on loving more and yelling less, no matter what the circumstance. It is
possible to change and enjoy a calmer life because of it! Take the
Orange Rhino 30-day challenge to yell less. In this guidebook to happier
parenting, author Sheila McCraith shares daily thoughts, tips, and
motivational personal stories to help you toss out the screams and
welcome in the peace. Whether you have one child or twenty (or one you
still yell at who is twenty), strengthen your relationships and maybe
even laugh a little more--by taking the challenge today.
I absolutely love this book. It is broken down into a 30 day guide. Each day includes a personal story from the author about her own journey and challenges to stop yelling, tips to help you stop yelling, actions to take to help you on your own journey, "Orange Rhino Revelations," plus inspirational quotes. This book is totally written as if the author, Sheila McCraith, is writing directly to the reader and is right there trying to help you. At the end of the book, there is "Beyond Day 30" and a summary of key points, including some of the most common triggers along with good suggestions for solutions. There is even an "Orange Rhino" sign on the back flap that you can cut out to put up in a high yelling area.
Can you stop yelling without reading this book? Of course. You can even do the Orange Rhino Challenge without this book. The author's blog, Facebook page, and Orange Rhino community are great resources. However, having this book would definitely be a plus, and I highly recommend purchasing it to help you on your way to yelling less and loving more.
I won an autographed copy from MomCaveTV. I was not required to write a review.
