So while it seems like the rest of the world is on the fad of detoxing and dieting and such challenges (all of which I wish I had the will power to do), I challenge you, fellow parent, to an orange rhino challenge! What is that you ask? Well, if you’re a parent, chances are you’ve yelled at your kid(s) a few times. If you haven’t, my hat’s off to you! Now off you go to your superhero duties to save the world. For the rest of us folks, the challenge is: no yelling for 365 days straight!
We all know that yelling is not good. Isn’t that what we teach our children? But actions speak louder than words, even loud words in this case. So, this website I came upon offers some really helpful tips on how to find other ways to show your frustration and deal with the situation: http://theorangerhino.com
I have just started this challenge as of yesterday and I’ve barely managed to get through my first 24 hours. This is no easy task, especially if you’re outnumbered, tired, and have allowed yelling to become one of your bad habits. But it’s doable, and should be done for the sake of the most precious people in your life.
Happy orange rhino challenge to you!
