Words mean EVERYTHING!

Words mean EVERYTHING.  Especially to a kid. Especially FROM their parent.

When I was about 7, I was an at amusement park with my family. My Daddy asked me to ride a roller coaster with him.  I was too scared.  Had never done that before.  He really tried to convince me, but my inner chicken was winning.  Then he said – “Come on, you’re brave.”  I couldn’t believe it. He thought I was brave, so I must be, right?!

I did ride it. It was terrifying. But I didn’t care. My Daddy thought I was brave.  That’s what I remember.  I wanted to be brave for him.

Words are EVERYTHING to a kid.
I don’t know who created this list, but I’m grateful for it!  Save it. Share it. And SAY some of these things to a kid who needs it 😉
xoxo, Jodi

Hi my name is D. I’ve been listening about the dating information about your friend Sam is in to. I am single and 60 years old. I am just a little leery about it. But I do want to meet people. I was married for a long time. I just don’t want someone to latch on to me and change my life. I’m just tired of staying home with my elderly Dad. I do need to meet people. Can you please have your friend Sam text me to let me know if he really fells this is working out for him. I am just a little scared of the nuts that may be out there. Thanks for your time. You all seem very down to earth and like good people and that’s what I need in my life. D.

I really like this list of positive statements! Being a School Social Worker, I see everyday how words can and do impact children… Positive and negative! So think before you speak, words are out there forever.
