As a nanny, I have been very lucky in my career to never work with a parent that was a yeller. I have had many passive aggressive parents but no yellers. I consider myself lucky. So many things can be come about from a parent yelling. The children can start to be yellers as well. Therefore you must really be on your “game” as the professional nanny that you are.
Nannyjobs has compiled a Top 10 Tip list for when “Mom is a Yeller” and we are sharing it today.
- Offer to Help. If the mom is yelling at the kids, you can offer to intervene. This can be difficult to approach, but something simple like “do you mind if I try to calm her, or how about I help them clean it up”, may give her a chance to see her overreaction.
- Stress Relief. Offer to take care of the kids, while she relaxes in the tub. This will give her time away, and she may realize the reason why you offered and try to curb her yelling habit.
- Encouragement. When a mom is a yeller, the children may feel discouraged and think they can’t do anything right. Take time to give them praise and encouragement to build their self-esteem.
