Awareness- #atozchallenge

A bolt out of the blue

It hit me where it hurt the most

My heart felt like lead

Weighted by the anguish and the tears

Her crumpled face was testament to the agony

That my Yelling had inflicted

Wrenched by guilt, I hugged her and resolved

No more. It’s time to make a change.

Word count: 55
This was the emotion I felt on the day before I undertook my ‘Yelling Less’ Challenge.

Written for the A to Z 2014 Challenge

A is for Awareness

My theme for the month is : Introspection in shades of 11

  1. She's so adorable! And yes such a touching post…I remember how my sister used to make her face when mom scolded her…There was no way any of us could stay mad at her for long, still the same even today 🙂

  2. Such a hard thing to watch for a parent and yet, so many parents do so much worse. I still don't know how. Yelling though at the end of the day, doesn't solve the problem. You yell, they learn to yell back and it just escalates the situation. Don't know why people don't get that. Great start Shailaja! 😀

  3. during my childhood I always thought crying is the best weapon to escape from the scoldings dat wud else keep continuing.. never did i thot dat it wud cause agony to my parents!!

  4. Superb,Shailaja 🙂 the pic is so cute, and yes, even when we yell at them, it hurts us the most ! I'm just reminded of how I should continue to control the fiery temper with little P 🙂 All for those priceless moments with her 🙂 Hugs 🙂

  5. 55 beautiful, loving words. The emotional wounds of anger are so hard to heal. I wish more parents would stop, as you have said, and realized the damage they are infoicting with their harsh words. Every parent should read this post! Great Day #1 post. 🙂

  6. Aww. Little Miss G has always been so adorable. I can totally see where your yelling less' articles came from. I'm now more conscious of how I sound and switch to reasoning it out, after having read that article. Thanks, Shailaja for that 101 on parenting. 🙂

  7. So cute..we all do it as moms…we cannot help it…with so less time and so many things going on…we need to make justice to everything…their cute faces really makes us move

  8. This post touched me. I hate having to correct my kids, but correct I do. If they push me past the brink and I lose my temper, I always feel bad. I always follow it up with hugs and kisses. ♥

  9. I think every mother goes through these emotions. Things get on mother's nerves (handling multiple things)> she yells or scolds her kid> Kid cries> mother feels guilty!!! She is cute, I am just trying to imagine her smiling face 🙂

  10. When you are stressed, sleep-deprived, just want some quiet, believe me, anything can make you yell. But yes, seeing this picture, I wonder, how could I yell at her!!?
