Wow. That really is powerful. That needs to be passed out to all new parents so that they KNOW the incredible weight negative words have on children. I cringe at the things I hear them say to their little ones out in stores. I have been tempted to say something. I do try to make eye contact with the child and smile, hoping it takes away some of the sting.
It's so true. No matter how many times we receive praise for our accomplishments, there's always just enough self-doubt lurking inside us to make us latch on to those few negative comments & criticisms. It's unpleasant but I wonder sometimes if it's necessary for us to stay grounded.
Hmmm, pointed. Why does human nature work like that?
So many land mines in the woods of life.
