to Your Children

had to yell at them. Explain to them that it just happened and you did not do
it intentionally. Get down to their level and try to turnaround the situation
by explaining it to them in a form of a story.

your children that is always good to accept the mistakes that we make and
apologize for the same.

patting the back, kissing etc. Such gestures will help you to express that your
intention behind yelling was not negative; you just wanted to stop your child
from doing something that was not correct.

yelling was just an accident. Your intentions were not bad at all. Promise your
child that it would not happen again and at the same time take a promise from
your child. Ask your child to promise that he or she would not behave in such a
way that it would compel you to yell.
Laughter is the best medicine for
everything. So, not only when you yell at your children, but also when you are
disconnected with your children due to some other reason, try to make them
laugh. Tell them some joke or some funny incident or just tickle them to make
them laugh and bring the smile back on their faces.

children are not only applicable while the children are young but also when
they grow-up. It is also important to note that it is a responsibility of
parents to be the first ones to take steps to reconnect with children for
