Don’t underestimate the power of the words you speak to your children.
They have incredible potential for good, and they also have the potential to destroy your child emotionally. As parents, we must be attentive not only to what we speak, we need to be careful about how we speak whatever we say.
A missing element in far too many homes these days is respect. Parents are communicating what they think of their children not only by the words that we speak to them but also by how those words are spoken, each and every day.
