Read this little pamphlet and ask yourself if, as a child, you have ever heard parents say these words. Ask yourself if, as a parent, you said these words. Believe it or not, watching our language can keep us from hitting our children. When adults hit children they use words that redefine, justify, minimize, and shift blame for causing pain to their children. If we adults stop using these words, we become open to learning new words that can lead us in positive parenting directions.
