A MUM has shared how she is desperately trying to be a “gentle parent” and feels guilty when she yells at her kids.
In a candid clip, she showed the moment she held back from nearly shouting at her child who had spilt some milk – and was stunned at people’s vicious replies.

TikTok user @cheyenne_lavon wrote: “I’ve been trying really hard to gentle parent and be better at controlling how I react to things.
“We were playing with Play Doh and my daughter knocked over a cup of milk.
“Managed to get me redirecting myself on video. I’m trying and I’m learning.”
In the video, she almost exclaims in anger when she sees the mess, but stops herself and says instead: “You…okey dokey, it’s ok, it’s just milk.”

She captioned her post: “Not a flattering angle by any means, but I felt this was important to share.”
Her post has racked up over 111,000 likes, but not everyone was complimentary in the comments.
One person replied: “And this is why not everyone needs to be parents.
“It’s obvious her reaction that you yell at her and blame her for something. Spills happen.”

Another added: “That’s why people should always be prepared for anything and ready themselves before having kids.”
However, one mum supported her saying: “I’m working on this too. You sharing mattered today.”
Cheyenne replied to the comments saying: “Thank you everyone. So many of you are standing up for me, a stranger.”
