Ways to Be a Better Parent

Stop yelling so much

Similar to the Rubber Band Method is the Five Rings Method, which has you start the day with five rings on one arm. Every time you yell during the day you take off a ring. By drawing your attention to how many times you yell, you will learn to yell less.

Many adverbs end in -ly for example happily, nicely. But some words that end in -ly are adjectives, not adverbs.
- The most important are friendly, lovely, lonely, ugly, silly, cowardly, likely, unlikely.
- She gave me a friendly smile. Her singing was lovely

There are no adverbs friendly or friendlily, lovely or lovelily, etc. We have to use different structures.
- She smiled at me in a friendly way (NOT She smiled at-me friendly )
- He gave a silly laugh. (NOT He laughed silly )

Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, and early are both adjectives and adverbs.
- It's a daily paper. It comes out daily.
- an early train I got up early.
