As a parent, have you ever felt as though your words have fallen on deaf ears? Even when our children do not seem to be listening to us or taking our advice—rest assured they are listening and watching. The words we speak and the tone of voice we use all matter. The memories of our words become imprinted on our children’s hearts. Our words have the power to encourage and discourage. We must choose our words carefully, wisely, and above all—lovingly.
