The Power of Words

Instead of telling kids that only sticks and stones can break their bones, but words can never hurt them, we should tell them the truth.
Words CAN hurt them.
Words are very powerful, and can lift or crush others, especially young people who don't have a solid sense of self yet.
Teach them empathy, and to use words only in a loving way. Words can help people to achieve things they weren't sure they could, and words can bring people down to depression or suicide if their self-worth was already low.
Teach them that true power is in helping to build good, strong spirits, not to tear them down.

  1. I agree that words can be powerful. That’s a fact, IMO. Please explain how you can say that and simultaneously believe that we can control the effect of hurtful words?

    “You can't control what people say, but you can control if you let it bother you.”
