Five tips on how to stop yelling at your child Eve woman

You just had a bad day at work, you’re tired, hungry and your kids are at each other’s necks. Moody and irritated you find yourself screaming on top of your lungs.

Your tolerance and patience have run out and your natural response to their misbehaving is yelling to get them back on line.

At the moment, it feels like a good idea as a deafening silence fills the room and their little eyes begin to well up.

Did it work? Sadly, no.

Remorseful as they may be, it may harm your children’s psychologically in the long run. Yelling is also downright damaging to their fragile esteems.

This unhealthy form of communication may lead to a fight, flight or freeze reaction especially if they are much younger.

If this happens every day, it may be ingrained in the children and may be how they react as they grow up – used to yelling and yelling at other people.

Here are some tips on how you can parent effectively without having to yell.

i.Go for warnings

Before you lose it, let your kids know they are pushing you, and you are about to yell or come down on them in an unpleasant way.

This way, they will take the caution seriously and stop doing whatever it is that’s driving you crazy.

While at it, if it’s something that doesn’t involve fighting over a toy or them picking on each other, give them a few minutes to finish whatever it is they are doing that had caught their attention.

It doesn’t hurt to make a little compromise to avoid unnecessary crying and all the negative feelings that may follow thereafter.

ii.Remain calm

You’ve probably heard this a million times but trust me, it will serve you and the children well. This is because your emotions are contagious.

If you go all crazy on them, they will act the same way. But if you’re calm so will they be.

Remember your children are still young and they don’t understand things the same way you do.

And if they’re struggling with something like their assignments or getting out of bed do not yell at their most vulnerable state.

This will only hurt them and increase their fear and anxiety.

Always remain calm and kind and remind yourself they are only children.

iii.Take a break

Before exploding in front of your children and making things worse, consider looking for ways to destress and let the anger out instead of taking it out on them.

If you have to physically leave the room to scream or send your spouse over to handle it, do so to calm down then come back when you’re feeling much better.

This will help with self-control and soon you will be reacting differently whenever they’re misbehaving.

iv.Identify your triggers

By now you already know which bad behaviors and annoying habits drive you up the wall. For your kids to keep their cool use a different approach.

Don’t start yelling but go in with a pleasant soft voice. If they don’t respond, get closer, hold their hands and repeat.

v.Try some humor

Sometimes all you have to do to distract them from bad behavior is using some humor. Tickle them or mimic a cartoon voice to get their reaction.

They will forget they were crying and you can use this opportunity to be playful then give them the necessary instructions.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
