“You stupid kid.”  “Go away, I’m busy.”  “Stop being such a baby.”  “I’m sick of you.”  ETC. ETC.

Do you think a child is not taking in messages such as these? Internalizing words, accusations, belittlement and abusive language?

Think again – and please do watch this video. It’s good. I think parents, teachers, neighbours, kids, grandparents all need to hear it, to be on the look-out to stop anyone talking to children in this manner.
