  4. Can someone please help me find the link I’m looking for. It was a link that showed what you children hear, feel etc in reaction to your interactions with them, such as yelling, threatening them etc. I just loved it, it made me cry and I wanted to share it with others. Thank you so much. I’d really appreciate it.
