Nobody really knows what they're doing when it comes to parenting. We do what we think is best and, if it doesn't kill the first kid, we figure it must be working so we do the same with our other kids. And whether you want to admit it or not, we incorporate things our parents did to/with us. Combine all those things and, viola, you've got parenting.

When you have kids, you're gonna yell at them, it's a scientific fact. Even the most patient, most well-intentioned parent will eventually reach the end of his/her rope and will start hollering. What we say or yell is also passed down from generation to generation.
