Bad News or Ranting Parent post

God has seen fit to bless us with four very easy to raise children. Having said that I must admit that I am now not on speaking terms with two of them. The two middle children. Thirteen year old girl and fifteen year old boy.

The short version is, I got suckered into screaming at the two of them (in front of the four year old) to stop screaming at each other in front of the four year old. Towards the end of my bellowing I realized the irony of the situation and sent them both out of my sight till my mental age could catch back up to my chronological age.

Let me just state for the record that screaming is not an effective parenting tool.
