3. Control your voices
Home is a place where strict rules are understood by both parents and kids. If one rule needs to be written in stone, it’s that your tone of voice should be controlled at all times, regardless of your emotions. Even when you have to punish your kids, control your tone and volume. This shows that you are in control of the environment. However, if you yell at the kids, that shows you are out of control and are potentially creating an emotionally scarring environment.
