To prevent this, don't push opinions as facts
Ali words do indeed matter. As a teacher and leader of teachers I have talked about this impacting children’s lives. I recall an art teacher looking at a students piece of work and saying “not bad”. What was meant as a compliment devastated the child. Susan Scott, an author, once wrote “the conversation is the relationship”. I would add and the words are the conversation.
Thank you for this article.
Hi, Ali. So true that words affect us. What's even more unacceptable is when you start to bring your opinion forward, they, on the other side, will defend their judgment as if their life and everyone's life depend on their perspective. Hah. People! 🌟
