"With wisdom and humor, Sheila quickly becomes an encouraging friend and mentor who gently teaches you how to manage your frustrations while building your self-confidence. You'll have fun reading this ultimate self-help book and will find yourself turning to it for love, support, and guidance when you fear you may be losing ground." - Laura Deutsch, co-founder of Mommybites (mommybites.com) "This reviewer doubts there's a parent among us who didn't wish she yelled less, but here's one who actually learned how. Blogger McCraith (The Orange Rhino Challenge, theorangerhino.com), horrified at being "caught" by her handyman screaming at her four young sons, embarked on a challenge to go 365 days without yelling. In this title that combines personal story and everyday parenting tips, the author shares how she reached her goal and offers readers a 30-day condensed version for doing the same. "Orange -Rhinos" ("determined and energetic people who choose not to charge with words") have many options here, including easing into change, gaining awareness, and practicing trigger management. Each day contains tips for mood awareness and specific actions depending on if you're feeling cool, warm, or hot, such as screaming into the toilet and flushing away the rage and squeezing Play-Doh to a pulp in lieu of yelling. VERDICT Beautifully designed, with slick, heavy-duty paper and full-color photos and sidebars throughout. McCraith offers a practical, mom-to-mom approach to curbing the anger-guilt cycle that will likely resonate with readers more than the typical psychological examination of emotional regulation." - Library Journal "Yell Less, Love More is a quick-witted and lighthearted read written by a mom who has been there and isn't afraid to bare all, from her fist-pumping wins to her most embarrassing lows. Sheila doesn't sugarcoat or finger-wag, she walks with you. I finished the book with an overwhelming feeling that I can do this; I can yell less and show my kids that love is what I have for them. This book is how we're all going to get there - sanity, humor, and heart all intact." - Galit Breen, blogger, writer, mama of three, and converted yeller "An absolute MUST read for all parents. Sheila's friendly, honest voice is like a dear friend helping you through and cheering you on!" - Melissa Kaye, co-founder of Mommy Business (mommybusiness.net) "I loved every word of this book. Sheila's advice is honest, humorous, and most important, effective! As a clinical social worker and a mother of two young daughters, I highly recommend Yell Less, Love More both personally and professionally." - Carla Naumburg, Ph.D., author of Parenting in the Present Moment "If you want to stop yelling at your kids, this is the book for you. There's a reason parents flock to read the Orange Rhino online - she helps us feel better about ourselves as parents when we blow it entirely - and who doesn't, sometimes? She inspires us to dig deep and try again. But as delightful as this book is to read, it isn't just a feel-good book. It's a full-blown program to stop yelling, complete with day-by-day action steps, revelations, and original, powerful tips. Yelling is a hard habit to break, and we have to work on ourselves as well as change how we interact with our children. As you follow this program, you'll be able to feel your brain rewiring. And in a few months, you'll look back and realize you can't remember the last time you yelled. Well-organized, motivational, funny, supportive, and EFFECTIVE!" - Dr. Laura Markham, www.ahaparenting.com "Still, who wants to be a yeller, ever? That's why I was so glad to learn about The Orange Rhino blog, which was one of our winners in Parents' Best Blogs of 2013. McCraith has compiled her hard-won success and experience into a new handy, easy-to-follow book, Yell Less, Love More. What I love about this book is that it's written by a fellow parent who's so been there. (Four kids!) McCraith gets us. And she's generously baring her screw-ups and success for the rest of us to learn, and to simply feel less ashamed and alone. "Parenting isn't about perfection, but about progress," McCraith writes. "Mistakes happen. It's what I do afterward that's more important than the mistake." - Parents Magazine "The Orange Rhino's (a.k.a. Sheila McCraith's) parenting guide and memoir, Yell Less, Love More: How The Orange Rhino Mom Stopped Yelling at Her Kids - and How You Can Too!, shares more touching personal stories from her journey to stop yelling as well as manageable actions, practical tips, and genuine, loving support so that you too can succeed on your own journey to yell less." - Huffington Post "This book is a lifeline to regain hold of your sanity and help you stop yelling at your children. With Sheila's practical and doable ideas you can uncover the calm and caring parent you always hoped you'd be. She doesn't make you feel guilty; she empowers you and shows you how anyone can start from today and truly Yell Less and Love More." - Alissa Marquess, founder/editor of CreativeWithKids.com "This reviewer doubts there's a parent among us who didn't wish she yelled less, but here's one who actually learned how.
