Children have a great capacity to learn. They are like sponges that absorb everything they find in their environment. In this way, they learn words, which can positively or negatively influence the lives of others. Words can shape the essence of children; that’s why we should take care of every word that comes out of our mouths.
Parents often speak without being aware that, through words, they create stereotypes or labels in children.
A child who grows up in a home where they constantly receive loving words will feel that he/she has the backing and support to fulfill their goals. That will favor his/her self-esteem; on the other way, a child who hears rude words will feel profoundly frustrated, and this will have negative consequences in his/her life.
Sometimes saying the right words when you are bored, angry, or tired is not easy; however, it is essential to analyze what you will say. Words have great power.
When you talk to a child, you should always try to do it positively, highlighting his/her qualities and the benefits of doing things correctly. But if the child is told that they are doing the wrong things and is labeled as disorderly, brusque, or rude, you are not giving them the opportunity for a change; you are reinforcing the inappropriate behavior.
The first role model for a child is his/her parents. That is why it is necessary to reflect on how they express themselves towards others. The words must be consistent with the actions since children will learn from the words that are said and the actions of their parents.
