Words have power.
Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.”Yehuda Berg
As caregivers and parents, we pay close attention to how our children speak to us, but we don’t always pay attention to what we say to them, and how we say it. we think a lot about how our children speak to us and how they behave.
Did you know that if your words and tone are more conscious and positive, your child is:
- more likely to listen
- learn to communicate with others (friends, teachers, family members) with respect
- develop the skills needed to regulate their behaviour
- create a healthier, stronger bond with you
Words have the power to build us up, or tear us down. If you’re ready to learn more about how to become more conscious of your words and get some tips and tools for speaking more positively to your children, then you won’t want to miss this month’s information sessions on the Power of Words, March 9th at 1:30pm or March 13th at 10am.
