Book Description

To Yell or not. Yelling often seems bigger than our own resolve and
determination. Does this sound familiar? If so, this book is exactly what
you need!

In these pages you will find:

. how to determine what causes you to yell

. learn how to stop yelling before you even start

. what God has to say about yelling

. what scars yelling causes to the yeller and the receiver

. AND, how to stop yelling once and for all!

Stop fighting with your children! Yelling is something we do and wish we
didn't. It's habit forming, yet ineffective. It doesn't motivate our
children - it destroys a part of them and damages our relationships. We hate
our yelling yet find ourselves yelling.

The clear, direct, and humorous writing style allows busy parents to quickly
read the book, absorb its concepts, and put them to use. You will find that
these principles will lessen stress and bring more enjoyable rewarding

You CAN stop yelling. Here is concrete help that works! Real-life help from
one mom to another. Although the examples are geared toward younger children, the strategies DO work for all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good reminder July 23, 2012
By Vera C.
Format:Kindle Edition
I'll have to say first off that even the greatest books out there are not going to cure yelling unless we are willing to apply what we learn. Trust me, I've read all kinds of parenting books but until I prayerfully seek God on how to put it into action, even if it is only one change, it is not going to make any difference.

With that said, I found this book a quick read, but one that will take effort to pray over and think about. There wasn't really anything new for me, but I did appreciate the practical suggestions and applications. Even if I didn't utilize those, they were a jump-start on seeking options and creating a workable plan of action that fit my own life, personality and circumstances.

Overcoming the common mom tendency to yell will take work. There really is no easy cure, so don't expect it to fix your problems. However, if yelling is your standard mode of operation, carve out a half hour to read this ebook and then find one thing to put into action. Give yourself some time to let it sink in. If it doesn't "work", choose another idea and try again. But the payoff is worth it: in our character, but most importantly, in our relationships with our children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Help for habitual yelling July 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You would think that wearing skirts and dresses would make me more demure and feminine. Well, I would anyway. And I'd be dead wrong. Dresses do not stop me from losing my temper and yelling at my "exactly-like-her-headstrong-mother" daughter. Did you get all that? And not only are my 3 year old and I throwing estrogen canons all over the house, but my 1 year old has decided to join the fun. YIKES!

Given the increase in the amount of yelling around this house, Lorrie's e-book Yelling: The Cause, The Casualty, The Cure could not have arrived at a better time. Lorrie is somehow able to sympathize with the reasons that I yell while making me resolve to change. And she can do all that without making me feel like a terrible mom! In addition to pointing out the causes, the discusses the effects of yelling on children and how to beat your trigger points.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for review, but all opinions are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pratical advice with encouragement July 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a quick read, while still giving information on how to rethink how we respond to yelling. It is first of all wonderful we are reminded to put God first in all areas of our life. Also important we are reminded every child is different. As a parent/grandparent I was able to see that I have done things right over the years, but at the same time I did pick up some new ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Steps for Gaining Control July 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No one wants to admit that there are times it happens. This book offers some wonderful and practical (and common sense steps) for learning to gain control, even if it only happens sometimes. Recognizing the triggers and making a plan seem so "common sense" and yet, can be so often overlooked. Some will read this and want to thunk yourself in the head over the "duh" factor. Worth every penny!

4.0 out of 5 stars This book came at a great time July 24, 2012
By Bea
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As another reviewer stated, part of what I enjoyed about this book is knowing that I'm not alone in this. I don't want to yet at my kids...I hate it! I want to show them my love and God's love everyday...I want to give them a better childhood than what I had. This book has encouraged (and challenged) me - I CAN retrain myself to speak to them differently. It's not going to be easy, but my relationship with my kids depends on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful advice from a Mom who knows July 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought that this book was very well written and really "did" hit on the The cause, the casualty AND the cure for Yelling. Lorrie shares her own issues with yelling and how she was able to climb out of that habitual behavior to freedom and peace. The author is very real and the book is not full of unrealistic expectations that you will be cured by tomorrow but is an 11 step guide on how to truly make changes and bring peace to your relationships at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars We all have done it... July 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Yelling...we all have done it, whether we want to admit it. Sometimes we are shocked at what we have just done or said. Lorrie knows that this is a problem for many. Her book is full of advice to help with this problem area and includes a step by step plan, with scripture, as well as a printable to remind you. Everyone needs this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A parenting must-have! July 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition

Just the word sounds horrible, doesn't it? Yelling implies harsh words delivered in a harsh manner.
Mrs. Lorrie Flem has such a gentle way of holding your hand and talking to you through her written words....talking to you as a concerned friend. She pulls no punches and does not sugar-coat the truth.

She also is sure to include Biblical references for what she "preaches". It's always right on. Yelling: The Cause, The Casualty, and the Cure is no different. Like a concerned friend who has been there, Mrs. Flem gives you gentle advice to stop the yelling. I don't think any of us wants to yell at our children. I know I sure don't. But, it happens. Sometimes more than we care to admit. So, how do you make it stop???

This e-book is an absolute treasure. It's filled with helpful ideas, ways to head off the triggers of yelling, Scriptures to encourage you not to yell, as well as "from the trenches" advice. I have read many parenting books over the years. This particular one needs to be on every shelf in America. It's far too easy to resort to yelling to get your point across to your child. But, that doesn't really get the point you want to make across. It sends the wrong message and causes a rift between you and your child and does not get done what you originally set out to do. Yes, it steps on your toes. But, that's the point. If you weren't guilty of the yelling, it wouldn't bother you, now would it??

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
