Every day there are words coming out of our mouths. They can either build people up. Or they can tear them down. In the United States we having a saying, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” This is a false saying. Every word that comes out of our mouths will either hurt or help. It will either bring family members closer or push them apart. This is something we need to consider when we are speaking—to our children, to our spouse, to other family members.
