Atoning for Tone

Sunday evening was a case study in the less constructive tone of voice issues that my children and I bring to the table. My son is experimenting with a forceful “No.” My daughter is experimenting with things she is getting at school. I add in an angry and frustrated tone when I reach my point of overwhelmed. Together, these tones mix to create a lot of hurt feelings. I really need to work on mine while helping the kids out of theirs. Hard work!
