The Antidote to Bullying

September 11th, 2010

Articles are everywhere on bullying. For example, “kids need to be taught the power of words.” Look at almost any website geared toward parenting and you will see this being talked about.

Who is teaching kids to bully? We are. When we careless spew forth the garbage of our minds in front of kids, we are giving them permission to do the same.

We need to purify our words. We need to use filters BEFORE speaking: filters of thought, discernment, sensitivity, and etiquette. We need to use filters to take out the dirt and impurities.

Wait… wait and breathe, as www.marianneclyde.com says.

And then… if you must… use words.
