I have a big problem. I’ve had it for awhile. I repeat myself over and over and over again like a broken record and yet no one in my house seems to hear me! It’s like they are all plotting against me. It drives me nuts when I feel like it takes 10 times of asking before my kids will do what I’ve asked. My oldest has gotten to the point where she always claims she never even heard me. I half believe it and here is why. What do we do when we hear something over and over again? We eventually start to tone it out. It’s a survival mechanism. I have officially been TONED OUT! But not for long! I have found a new weapon. Actually several. And they seem to be working. My husband has joined in on the fun. Want a tip on how to stop screaming at your kids?
