"Stick and Stones May Break Your Child's Bones but Negative Words "Can" Always Hurt Them Too!!!
Parents remember the old adage, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me?" Well it was wrong! We have to be very careful with negative words that we say to our children and we should never abuse them on any level and verbal abuse can last a lifetime.
Monitor what you say to your children! You can stick knives directly into their hearts with sharp-pointed evil words! You must be careful when you are talking to your children and even when you are angry, you must concentrate and choose your words carefully!
We must think about our parents before we speak and we must ask the question, "How would I have felt if my mother talked to me like that? We all know the words we wished our parents had said to help us instead of hurting us. Here is your opportunity to get it right without screaming foul words at your children! Let's face it when we say ugly words they only hear the ugly words, the lesson you were trying to teach goes out of the window!!!
So now that we know that words can hurt "to the bone," what are we going to do about it? Change your m.o! You can teach your child a lesson without destroying him/her! Make a decision to rephrase what you have to say to your child to save your child! Your child will win and you will win! It will be a win-win situation!!! Write to me to give me your opinion! I am looking forward to hearing from you!!!
