Never take your frustrations out on anyone, and use it as an excuse to say things we later regret. Verbal abuse can be just as damaging, not just to kids, but anyone you are interacting with.
This video shows us just how powerful words can be.
I remember often doodling in class (oops) when I was disinterested in whatever the teacher was saying… and once my teacher picked up my drawings and said, “ee.. look at those eyes. where nice? they look so scary”
Guess what? I’m using the same style currently for LoveByte’s mascot.
Before you say something, ask yourself three questions:
- Is it useful?
- Is it kind?
- Is it necessary?
Otherwise, it’s better to keep yourself shut when you have nothing nice to say.
