Transcription: 
The tone of voice we use when speaking to our children influences, very heavily, our message. It influences how they are going to receive our message as parents. When we use a sarcastic, humiliating, degrading tone of voice with them, our children have already shut down. They have stopped listening. It's not the message that we are talking about, it's the tone. It's the delivery of the message. When you come from a place of anger, our children will hear that. When you come from a place of love and openness, they'll hear that. Tone of voice is important. Also, when you are using your tone of voice with them, know that you are modeling. It's a way to speak to people, to speak, to their peers, to speak to their teachers, to speak to others in their lives.
