Been trying out a new thing on the kids, trying to curb my yelling and screaming. With 3 under 8, it can be a trial.
I have started singing at them. Not to them at them, and I mean that operatically. I literally go into that deep, foreboding,”Avi come here!”…
Like Pavarroti calling his kids , or maybe Muddy Waters….
and I don’t come out of opera voice until they comply with my request…
I said come here!
I mean it come here right now!
Right n… thank you!
yeah, it sounds like an angry biker daycare musical…. but it seems to work. even on a peer pressure level, as the other two kids encourage whomever is out of ‘tune’, to comply so dad will shut up.
