“Talk nice, please!”
I probably say this phrase about a gazillion times a day to my kids.
I understand why, though. Kids have a hard time controlling their emotions. They are still developing the social skills to express strong feelings toward others. So naturally one of our jobs as parents is to help them learn how to express their emotions in a healthy way; to learn how to “talk nice.” This concept will help them in developing healthy relationships through out their lives.
But I’d like to take this a step further and apply the “Talk Nice” concept to…ourselves.
Do you “talk nice” to yourself?
