No Yelling, Please

Do you know anyone who yells a lot ? I hope not ! People who yell, in anger, have not yet gained full control over their “inner toddler”. We all need to strive to keep our inner toddlers under control, as we move towards emotional, and spiritual maturity.

Yelling, as a social behavior, is ineffective, ( unless, of course, you are warning someone of danger, or you need urgent help).

Parents who yell at their children lose their children’s trust. Scars from being yelled at can affect children for a lifetime, and can result in anxiety disorders, and issues with self-esteem.

Teachers who raise their voices at students quickly demonstrate that they have lost “control” over their classes. Student misbehaviour is usually greatest in classrooms where teachers habitually yell in ineffective attempts to influence student behaviour.

And, relationship partners who yell to gain control over their loved ones often eventually find themselves single.

Anger has been called the ‘iceberg’ emotion, since underneath the anger, which symbolically is visible ‘above the water’, there are other emotions. One of the main emotions underlying anger is fear. Other common feelings underlying anger are humiliation, jealousy, and pride.

A mom, for example, yelling in ‘anger’ at her kids, may actually be afraid that her misbehaving children will grow up to be juvenile delinquents, and she will be blamed !

Yelling is also damaging to our precious vocal chords. If we are careful to avoid straining our voices in this way, we can usually keep our voices sounding youthful as we age.

Let us ask God for the grace to improve our relationship skills so that we lose the impulse to yell at others.

    1. Hi Temi – I think especially for a man, it is more “acceptable” to yell in “anger “, than to admit that what he is feeling is fear. And, as you clearly point out, emotions are contagious. I remember being in school with a teacher down the hall who yelled at the kids and every time we heard him, everyone froze. 🤗

      1. Yes, for sure, people from different cultures express themselves differently. Sometimes , I wonder if it has anything to do with the temperature of their ancestral heritage. Italians definitely are expressive, and “bigger”.
        I am of Northern European Heritage, and these cultures are more reserved, and generally quieter. Sometimes, for example, an Italian might think of a Swede as being “aloof”, but Northern cultures are generally more reserved.
        Very interesting observation. Thanks !

  1. Yelling has its time and place such as yelling to get someone’s attention due to danger is okay.

    But yelling at kids out of anger can lead to problems and a cycle of abuse.

    I do sometimes raise my voice, not yelling, to get my students’ attention when it is time to change activities.

  2. Anxiety and depression can make it a lot harder to control emotions. Shouting can also be a result of unbearable pain from anxiety or depression. These things do not make you yell out in pain instantaneously, but can build up and result in that.

    For me, right now, a noisy housemate is driving me to want to explode, and I’ve already had a frustrating and depressed day so my nerves are frayed. I definitely have misophonia and I’m being repeatedly stressed by noise. Anxiety or frustration fill my body with energy, they cause physical pain, until eventually only a physical action can dissipate it— such as exercising or shouting— it HAS to come out, and physically. I think some people have a greater need to express physically.

    I also lost the respect of my parents for shouting AT me, and for being physically and emotionally threatening.

    I don’t think anybody who shouts ever wants to do it— it’s highly stressful for the person shouting, too. It’s important to have sympathy for a person who’s yelling, and to find out the reason, and understand their pain. Yelling ends up being ineffective when people are unable to remain calm enough to respond sympathetically— which takes a certain kind of person, I know.

    1. Obviously, the person shouting needs to be open with their feelings in order to be helped. This is just coming from somebody who’s experienced intense emotional pain, and has to express physically at a certain point, and has been very limited for getting this out through exercise— which is a big cause of my mental health problems in the first place (being unable to exercise easily and freely). I’m also very open and understand myself well— so that as soon as somebody is being sympathetic and empathetic with me, it really eases my pain.

      So, I yell a lot and have been for a few years now, but because of intense emotional pain and distress.

    2. Hi ! Thanks for your wise and insightful comments. Yes, for sure, the person shouting is stressed too. That’s an excellent point.
      I have misophonia too, and had to consult with an audiologist who made me some custom ear filters to block out some of the noise. I shop at a local grocery store where there is total silence, rather than a larger one where pop music is always played.
      And I have an app. on my phone which is a decibel meter, and I go around measuring sound volume. Usually I will tell people if the music is too loud except for the time I didn’t challenge an organist who was playing an organ with a broken volume control. Ouch !
      Thanks again for your insights. I hope that your housemate will be less noisy. 🤗

    1. Hi there ! Yelling is really complex. It never helps the person exposed to it, or the yeller. We do need to sympathize with those who habitually yell. I worked with a young man once who was very verbally aggressive, but through a kind physician’s care he was found to be suffering from depression. May the Holy Spirit grant us the gift of self control, and may he show us the reasons why people chose to yell, and how we may be able to help them.

  3. I had an aunt who screamed at my cousins all the time. It really annoyed me. I have no problem with someone raising their voice to get someone’s attention, but yelling in anger is not acceptable. I know a couple of guys who just talk so loud it sounds as if they are yelling but don’t mean it in that way. But it does annoy me when they just keep getting louder as they are so involved in what they are saying. My mother used to tell me about her Grade 8 teacher who yelled so much she was off with laryngitis for a couple of weeks every year. Then it came time for me to enter Grade 8 and the same teacher was still there all those years later. I was afraid to start school that year, but she must have mellowed by then as I don’t recall her yelling at all and I really liked her. I live in an apartment building and I have heard some serious shouting matches from other apartments and it is really disturbing. I like Proverbs 15:1: A soft answer turns away wrath. It’s a good principle to put into practice.

      My husband watches T.V. and I don’t, and I notice that lots of shows involve people shouting and being angry, and I wonder why people would find this entertaining . Yes, of course, we must talk loudly sometimes, in case of danger or necessity, or when needing help.
      Thanks for your thoughtful comments, and I am happy to hear that the yelling teacher had mellowed by the same you were in her class. 🤗

  5. Yelling is terrible and it can be spontaneous at times. Moms like me go crazy and raise our voices or yell when we feel our kids are turning deaf ears and that’s not good for kid’s development. We need to breathe and calm down before talking to these kids. It won’t be easy but the only way is calm down before talking.

      I am glad that society is becoming much more aware of emotional intelligence, and how this skill can be taught. Emotional Intelligence training begins with teaching parents how to recognize their babies’ emotional cues. Let’s pray that more programs become available to teach everyone the importance of understanding our own emotions, and the emotions of others.

I did hear the term Reptilian Impulse used in reference to angry, hostile individuals, but though that one makes lots of sense to me I do think your term is much better and really is within the realm of actual causality for that condition; as there are many people who just won’t grow up and mature or get over it; always wanting it their way or the highway!

    1. Hi Lawrence ! Nice to hear from you. Society has just been more aware of Emotional Intelligence since around 1995, and there is more research now about how people can train themselves to recognize, tolerate and moderate their emotions. Ideally this training should begin in early childhood, but when we were young, no one talked about Emotional Intelligence, or emotions generally.
      Toddler Syndrome is a term I made up, just reminds me of being a mom and seeing how toddlers deal with frustration.🤗 I am going to look up Reptilian Impulse, that term is unfamiliar to me. Thanks for commenting. 😄

      1. Hi Sally! Good to see this idea of yours and all of the interesting responses! I agree when we think how little toddlers respond to frustration and seem to lose all composure I think you came up with a good example and analogy here! This Reptilian Impulse I mention may not be the exact term I was remembering which I read about and did watch an educational program or two that covered this general idea of the cerebral cortex or brain stem function is in some way similar to basic reptilian response to stimuli. I think as I recall it was more a pseudo-science expression with some people I knew at the time being bandied about in reference to how some men were showing violent, blatant, unthinking rage in certain circumstances, so it was more of a basic brain stem cue or response and it’s been years since, but it may have had something to do with autonomic bodily function or basic nerve impulses such as breathing, the best I can recall off the top of my head, and what I thought of back then as a more zombie behavior or science fiction type monster, a Frankenstein if you will behavior, but now that you got me thinking about all of this I’m going to have to do some research myself and maybe we can share something very tangible about it soon! 😄

      3. Oh Sally I only now recall that you had this extensive background from your work mentioned in your writings somewhere before! So I’m sure you have a tremendous education and firsthand observational in the field knowledge about this subject and area of research. Oh now you hit on a “Nerve,” mentioning the partisan and actually tribal political arena these days which is a prime example of what I was driving at! We can see plainly the actually madcap and emotionally fueled behavior in how these candidates respond to each other and the citizens in some of the debating or rallies as well as how those camps of supporters carry on, with sometimes accompanying protestors! To me it’s all about winning of course but more about the “spoils of war” here, in that they lust for power and more control either for themselves or at least their party (like gangs) not actually caring one bit about the constituency; as these patterns have been established for some time now especially by the Dems and their radial agenda or worse splinter groups within their own party just pushing the underlying agenda and then after elections they stay right in the same groove of doing basically nothing of any great redeeming or substantive value for those they are supposed to represent and the good of the Nation as a whole, but instead seek out those spoils I speak of. It is in a sense a sham or con game and some of these career politicians are extreme con artists pulling the same wool over the eyes of the public as best they can to perpetuate their own crooked existence! To me it’s all sunken to the miserable level of just being political warfare or what’s typically referred to as political mudslinging! Very bad sign of the times and to me a very ugly thing to be stuck witnessing time and again; especially by the same two-faced crony self-worshiping bigots! Or in essence this is what I said earlier about a reptilian behavior in plain sight, albeit a psychological violence over a physical one, nonetheless doing actual damage to the society and process that is much worse than if it were actually physical violence with someone getting more lumps than the other guy like ancient tribal peoples did to one another when duking it out! As a case in point I can say how Bernie who never worked an honest day in his life and after his marriage went to Moscow for his honeymoon has spoken socialistic values and agendas incessantly and how those that have so much earned wealth should be giving up much of their own to the masses; while he has gone on to become a millionaire off the backs of the same taxpayers he is preaching to; and how in 2018 he earned 1Mil and gave away to the needy 10K. If that isn’t a two-faced bigot phony I don’t know what is! Like I say this hood never worked for a living but instead has fed off the public like a parasite; he doesn’t know what real work is and is oozing with sin! Then consider the hundreds of millions and even billions that are being spent to make it happen for one’s own self or camp, tribe; that by its self should speak volumes to how wicked and sinful the whole charade has become, and I might add; in my mind’s eye very reptilian! This is all one very sick society and the wickedness is seething out of this madcap political arena like there’s no tomorrow! God is very displeased with such bigotry and worship of self or earthy power by such broken, sinful humans.

    2. Hi again, Lawrence. Thanks for pointing out the activity of the reptilian brain. Yes, as you say, most of us have the option of giving in to the impulses of the reptilian, or primitive brain, or controlling the impulses through the neocortex of the brain, through cognitive conditioning. 😄

      1. Yes I’ve been behind the curve Sally catching up on some things and I wrote a response to you about this subject sharing a few more tidbits I could remember just moments ago before I got this most current update from you which is correct, that is the language and general direction my thinking was taking me all based on reading and discussion coupled with some programs many years ago but still in my head! Fascinating stuff and I know there are definite impulsive cues or responses built in to our DNA if you will, a similarity along the lines of fight or flight response by all complex living beings that have sophisticated enough nervous systems. When you speak to conditioning that is a wide range of development behaviors infused into as I said DNA or life bodily function forces at work within us that are primal and have much to do with survival or protecting oneself from a hostile environment overall! We also see by example many times a person who grows up in a very violent always on edge environment say with the mean streets with gangbangers, that often times these individuals will resort to most confrontational situations with over-the-top violent behavior or overly aggressive attitudes to just about anyone that gets in their way or face as they say! These modern day behaviors are conditioned and could be potentially suppressed with therapies and biofeedback but I was targeting those very ancient primitive forces that are imbedded deep in the psyche and nerve impulse layers of the brain/nervous system, like when someone sneaks up from behind and says BOO, we always jump, or even the fear of being alone in the dark which happens to all of us growing up thinking we see a monster in the closet at night or that a shadow is something more than that! These innate fears are on a very basic level of stimuli response, maybe like those studies done by Pavlov with dogs! I still will have to read up on these things as I get time to refresh my own memories and concepts! Thanks for the cues!!! 😄

I once in a while say something that won’t rub someone the wrong way I guess but I tend to talk and write a lot, so this message of yours in the very least gives me more hope and desire to be persistent, which is what a nice lady with a British accent told me once many years ago when I was a very young lad trying to get my foot in the door literally by being able to get permission to go on a major movie location set, and I kept following through each day until that nice lady said that to me; “you’re such a persistent young man.” I got to meet the production manager by this lady arranging it and went onto the set with him, only after I had actually been getting myself in there on my own a few nights! The very gracious lady didn’t know just how persistent and a bit sneaky or clever I could really be! I did get caught and that was the same day the production manager met me, but he had grace and understanding, so after reaming me out he said “let’s head over to the set now!” Go figure! Sad to say these days anyone tries what I did they won’t get those reactions anymore!
        By the way, now that I got all of that out of the way; your blog is fabulous and so beautifully constructed; loaded with great articles full of pertinent information and humanity! God Bless You and Yours. Amen.

Both of you can harness what you learn from your own perspectives and help teach each other how to be stronger in the ways that each of you has need to strengthen and most of all in the process grow to appreciate our Lord Jesus while building a fortified victorious faith! I took off from home way back around the time I finished college and just tossed my suitcases in the trunk drove cross country with no plan other than to get to LA. I did find that some amazing things fell into place like when I met a nice master’s fellow at UCLA between sessions while I inquired about the Television Film Department. She was from Beverly Hills so she knew all sorts of people in that industry and the next thing I knew I was in the studios which I had driven by daily wondering how could I ever get in there and meet the actual people that make the programs and movies! She gave me the name of a stage manager at WB and said call him. I did and the next thing I knew I was in the studios meeting a group of working professionals that networked and hung out in the studio some nights to build their skills and talents. Some of the best ones I met there were Mormons and this one couple about my age thought my accent and ambition were all excellent, while I thought they were so cool and laid back being native Southern California folks, so they befriended me immediately and invited me over for dinner and so on! I also went to their church a few times as well. I’m saying all this because I know God does watch over us just by my own living proof, and if we are discerning and being ever faithful to Him we can’t lose. I was in a learning curve and He gave me an amazing opportunity of self-discovery and experience to build on. It’s all a long story but this matter that you speak about is very important and I feel inspired to share anything I can with you in order to offer help as the Lord wants us to do. His will be done! I hope something I’m saying here will help your family member and you, and I don’t know if you read a recent article of mine, “Reptilian Impulse Factor” but I did try to relate to this matter of anger as you said here as being similar to “fight or fight!” Check it out and let me know what you think and if we can continue on this subject or any other just let me know! Thank you for the inspiration and added insight! God Bless.
        Oh, btw, don’t be put off by some things I say in blogs I get roaring at times saying what my emotions are perhaps dictating at that moment and I say things that are offensive to some people I’m sure, when as one of my sisters said the other day my reptilian factor is triggered! I’m far from perfect and do make some good efforts I hope most of the time but then I fail at other times not being, one myself, to allow the better angels of our nature to lead the way in all my speech or outlook. Eventually if I was wrong I see it, and feel ashamed and sorrowful and seek to do the right thing. We are living in a most tumultuous world these days and I think we all struggle at one time or another to strike that perfect balance between moving forward with change and trying desperately to cling or hold onto our comfort zone! Evolution and Birth are not easy things as you like all mothers know better than I ever could in a million years! God Bless You again!

  9. I think it would be so helpful for all parents of young children to have an insurance covered parenting class that teaches them about child development, appropriate expectations and coping skills for mom and dad too! Because most moms hate that they yell but they can’t seem to stop. So regret does nothing to cure the problem. We have to learn new skills to manage stress! We often have unrealistic expectations that lead to unrealistic irritation. Education can help! And maybe even a portion of the class can teach about the damage yelling does to attachment and growth

    1. You’re so right and see clearly into the dilemma of being a good parent and mother! Living up to someone else’s expectations or even a circumstance making us victims of circumstance will only be wrought with hardship and bitterness for all involved. Seeking to balance so many demands being placed on us especially when the emotional component is tossed in with children today needing so much guidance and having many conflicting things coming at them on top of growing pains is a very difficult job I have to say! I mean to me it seems like a mother almost needs the patience of a saint to hold onto her own sanity and feel secure in how she is doing and that things will be OK. I like this idea of yours and how you want to see positive changes or improvements made with regard to parenting such as giving them better tools or resources to deal with their particular situation more specifically to strengthen the areas they have the most difficulty with. For example some individuals are very timid or can’t articulate their feelings and fears very well so they build up resentment or frustration that will overflow in some way eventually. So that kind of individual the way I see it needs to find better ways to learn how to have more self-expression whether through some conversational forum or modality and maybe even sitting calmly and learning how to write out their thoughts like they are telling a story about a very good but not understood person who just wants someone to know how they feel inside and if they need help at times feel afraid to ask or think they will be looked upon as inferior or get ridicule. Learning curves happen whether we initiate them intentionally or not but it is better to have them when we are seeking to learn and do it in a sensible well thought out approach, rather than the “school of hard knocks” tossing some major learning curves on our laps! But, again having the Lord by our side and seeking Him is the best start to any plan or approach any of us can come up with especially the unexpected ones I just mentioned, He will get us through them if we put our faith in Him with our whole heart! This blog sure turned into a kind of learning curve didn’t it Sally! Well I hope both of you fine ladies get something out of a few things I say, because I sure talk a lot, and to not get something of value like even entertainment, hardy, ha, ha would be a gyp and pretty mean of me!

        “John Bradford was an English Reformer, prebendary of St. Paul’s, and martyr. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London for alleged crimes against Mary Tudor. He was burned at the stake on 1 July 1555.”

        “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.” 1Corinthians 15:10
