I find this picture very appropriate for today’s message. For those of us who are visual learners, the lesson is in the picture. As parents sometimes we are clueless of the impact our words have on our children. Calling our children names should be a practice that needs to stop the moment you read this blog if this is something you practice. I know sometimes you can’t understand why your children do the things they do. Trust me, I know! I have been at this for 23 years, however, regardless of what you feel you, what your children did or said, you MUST NEVER call your children derogatory name.
Your words have Power! Use your words to bestow Blessings upon your children. There is a reason why you find more than one parent Bestowing Blessings upon their children in the Old Testament.
We also have that Power in 2013.
Bless your children, bestow Blessings upon them daily, but most importantly, please, please, please don’t call them names.
Parenting Life Coach
In addition to being a Life Coach I am also a school administrator, I have worked in the education system for 24 years now. For the last 15 years I have worked, well, really played (I LOVE My Job) as a school administrator and I have heard a lot, however, there are things that still make me shake my head!
Having a beautiful girl tell me that her dad tells her she is a drama queen as she cries to him and tells him her sister is harassing/bullying at home broke my heart this week!
My partner in crime and I had to go into damage control attempting to make this dad’s statement less lethal to his daughter as she cried her little eyes out in my office. My partner in crime in her infinite wisdom told her, hey, don’t worry about it, guys are dumb! They don’t know what they are talking about! She then turns and ask me, isn’t that right? Me being the silly adult that I am had to stop myself from cracking up. Believe it or not, this lighten up the mood, The little girl laughed and for a minute the tears were gone, however, the hurt was real.
As a school administrator there are things I just can’t say to parents, though sometimes I tell them more than I should, I actually have life coaching sessions with some of my parents FREE of charge, however, some issues are just so out of reach.Why doesn’t a Dad know that dismissing his little girl’s feelings are causing her damage? Does he realize the POWER of his words? We are going to assume that he cares and he wants to do BETTER! We are going to assume that if he could do BETTER he would do BETTER!
Parents, your words are SUPER Powerful! None of us should use our words in a negative manner towards our children or any children for that matter.
Is that possible?
Yes, it is!
All you have to do is think before you speak! When you are angry, don’t say anything! And if by chance you do say something to your child that would dim their GOD Light, just apologize and let them know that you won’t do it again!’
Please try hard not to use negative words towards your children!
