I'm over at Chicago Parent today talking about how I grew up and how I'm teaching my kids to control their emotions.
I grew up in a volatile house. It wasn't abusive or dangerous, just loud, filled with too many people with quick tempers in too small a space. Everyone was always yelling, even if it was just to talk room to room. Teasing and picking on each other was nightly entertainment, tears were to be laughed at.
Please head over to Peanut Butter in my Hair on Chicago Parent and tell me how you do it?
