Not the normal baby shower gifts

My sister-in-law is having her first baby. It took a while for her to get pregnant. She and my brother have a healthy income and can buy whatever they want for the baby.

How to curtail yelling spouse

My husband yells a lot at the kids. He just can't control his reactions when they do something that irritates him, which seems to be just about anything. Our 10-year-old son is now beginning to yell at his younger sibling and I'm trying to explain to my husband that if he would stop losing his temper over trivial things, our son would ease up as well. How can I do this without making him angry?My mom used to yell at us a lot. In some instances, it got louder than other times, especially if we…See More
