Hey I'm 24 and have 4 children ages 7,4, almost 3, and almost 2. I also do inhome daycare. I myself allow my children to express their anger, or frustration while yelling, crying or screaming as long as it's necessary. I don't live in a house where kids are constantly yelling, but I'm trying to prove that if you're upset, you can cry. If you're angry you can yell, but aim your anger at a stuffed animal and if yelling doesn't work than try talking. My fiance hates it when my children yell or cry. But I don't want to tell them to stop or yell at them back because I don't want them to feel like they can't express their frustrations. What do you think about this or am I in the total wrong for feeling like this. Please any advice or opinions!!!
