I sat here this weekend and watched a woman berate her daughter. Not just scold, but berate. Little wonder that a child grows up that way when it is spoken in front of others.
The other day I heard a parent brutalize their two young children with vile and destructive words. I found myself praying, as I was too far away from the scene.
Let me be honest. You will get what you say. You can choose to think that calling your child a G_D_ child or worthless will not catch fire in their system. It will. They will move towards that which you are calling.
Seek help if that is your lifestyle or language. And choose words that bring life and goodness to child’s world.
