Sandra, over at A Momma’s View posted an image on her blog recently that haunted me for days. The graphic was pretty disturbing. It’s not easy to get that image out of my skull, yet it hits the nail on the head and I just had to re-blog her very poignant post.
How very true and what a great illustration of what’s happening if we don’t control our words…

It is sometimes hard to keep words under control, especially in a state of anguish, but as parents, we do have a responsibility to filter our words. The truth is that kids absorb everything, and the constant use of unsavoury words on them would be damaging to their well-being in the long run.
It really ain’t right to call them names (apart from little monkeys! in my books) and belittle their beings with harsh words that are just not meant for them. This image will be etched in my head for a very, very long time.
