Stick and stones

Sticks and stones may brake my bones but words will never hurt me. I'm sure most of us have hard this in are youth at some point. But in today society we know a little bit more about the harmful physiological effects of teasing , negative statements and down right harrassment. This leaves me with 2 question , do you think people will raise there childern to choose there words wisely and not try to hurt others and with knowning are words have power why do so many adults still say such hurtful things?

  • Words ONLY have the power to hurt you if you LET them hurt you. Weak people let what others say to them hurt them.
