Family Night - Positive Words
I've been loving all I've learned about speaking positively and simultaneously wanting to share some of it with our family. I feel if we change the way we speak to one another it could potentially revolutionize our whole way of life in a good way (we aren't bad in the way we speak to each other, we do fine, but we can always do better, right?).
Every Monday night we have a family night. Some days are better than others and our kids are little enough that lessons need to be short and sweet. We talked about positive speaking-- I used stories from the examples in this post. Even though the kids were wiggly and distracted at times I think they enjoyed it. The best part was telling each other what we like about each other. We're making these (above, an example of something my son made for me for Mother's Day) today so each child can be reminded of what we think is special about him/her and so we have positive words in reservoir for reminding when we need something nice to say. :)
