Re: Do you simplify your schedule and errands when you have more kids?

I try to talk very quietly to the offender, whisper in their ear if possible. It keeps me from losing my temper, it keeps them from being humiliated, and it somehow makes a stronger impact than shouting or even talking loudly.

My mother did this to me and my sister growing up and to this day I cannot stand anyone whispering in my ear. My kids want to whisper sometimes and it literally makes my skin crawl to have hot breath anywhere near my ear.

Not that there's anything wrong with that technique. I could take a lesson in whispering, actually.
