Fathers And Mothers against Inappropriate Labeling and Yelling


Sometimes things are really simple. They may look complex, but if you take them one step, one part, one dimension at a time, even complex things can be understood. Sometimes, however, the forest cannot be seen through the trees.

The basic concepts here are very simple:

  • Except when there is an immediate danger, yelling at a child is not healthy.
  • Yelling at children to gain their compliance is not a productive parenting style.
  • Engaging in repeated power-struggles with children is not good for you or them.
  • There are many non-violent communicative options; yelling is not one of them.
This site is designed to help individuals and groups develop and use communicative options to reduce subtle forms of abuse. It is not about blame and punishment.
