Have you ever thought about the weight of your words?
As a homeschooling mother of a child with special needs, words mean a whole lot.
What words do you use to describe your child’s diagnosis?
What words do you use to describe your feelings toward it?
What words to you use to describe what others have to say about your child?
What words do you use to talk about your child to others?
What words do you use to explain why you’ve chosen to homeschool?
What words to you use to express your thoughts on and about the hard days?
What words do you use towards your child during a meltdown?
Words are powerful. I am not always proud of the words I use throughout the day, which is why I had to share this reflection. I thought we could all use the reminder to remain conscious of the words we use. I also share samples of go-to phrases that empower our children, especially on the hard days.
