Time to recommit because I've just been more lazy about this goal.

I'm doing a decent job at sticking to this goal. Poor Horatio spent like 10 minutes upstairs looking for a book that I quickly realized was actually downstairs but I didn't want to yell up to him and also was too busy to go upstairs to tell him. I just waited for him to come back down feeling defeated that he couldn't find it.

I told the kids I'd no longer be yelling across the house and that they didn't have to do the same, but that I won't respond to them from across the house when they yell to me. I will go to them when I have something to say or when I am free to respond to their call. Horatio is doing a lot of yelling across the house, "Mama! Mama, did you hear me or not?" because he has no confirmation that I've heard him. But after 2 days he is getting used to the concept. I'm doing really well with it.

6 weeks to focus on this habit. I had hoped when pregnant with H that I would cultivate a home where we don't yell across the house. But 5 years later and we definitely do, all the time. I'll get more steps in by making the effort to approach the person I'm trying to speak to. If it's a child, I'll make eye contact before speaking. No upstairs/downstairs dialogues. I suspect that this awareness and self-control will also help me in my continued efforts not to yell at all (as in scolding and relieving stress). We shall see.
