"Sticks and Stones"
Remember the childhood chant, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”? In reality, words can wound a child for life. The poet Longfellow wrote, “A torn jacket is soon mended; but hard words bruise the heart of a child.”
Is your child a brat, loud mouth, liar, tramp or a helper, good thinker, problem-solver, kind person? In your daily discipline, what you call your child is what you’ll get . . .eventually.
