Abuse Comes In Many Forms

Photo: Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. FALSE! Words can hurt so as much, if not more than actually being hit, and those words stay with a child longer than the physical marks every will. 


The dangers of screaming, shouting and insulting your children is well documented and shown to cause in some cases to cause just as much harm as spanking. We're a gentle parenting community and this is just a quick reminder of why this is so important. Emotional pain is just as bad as physical pain, it's just a little bit easier to hide the scars and it lasts a whole lot longer.
