If you read 'the FOUR AGREEMENTS' you will learn all about being kind as well as being kind with your words. A mother it said in the book came home after work, very angry and her young daughter was singing and dancing around having a great time and after a while the mother told her to SHUT UP, your singing and dancing is driving me crazy. The little girl was devastated and never sang again ever in her life till one day the mother said, you never sing any more since you were a child and the grown up daughter said..yep mum, the reason is this......... that you told me to shut up than my singing and dancing was driving you crazy so I thought you never liked my singing so I stopped''. It happens all the time, even as a joke, when all the time the receiver of the unkind words, usually finds them offensive esp when they hear it over and over again. Put Downs arent funny they hurt and said to a child, those words/vibrations can stay with them all their lives this is why some children feel so worthless, cut, suicide, and other things b/c really nasty unkind words is the same as being physically abused. Think about it......... THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
