You should become a "Cheshire Cat"

Let me tell you - one of my parenting struggles is dealing with annoyances and discipline issues without losing my temper and yelling. I cannot tell you how many countless times I have told my children that I was sorry for getting mad and/or yelling at them and asked them to forgive me. I constantly struggle not to react in anger. That is one reason I enjoyed All Information Blog's post about laughing at discipline worries. The author advocates putting on a Cheshire grin and lowering your voice instead of getting angry and yelling. You'll have to read it for yourself; I know I haven't done a good job of communicating their message!
