Sticks and Stones

Remember the saying "Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me"? I think our intentions when teaching this to our children...as well eons in the past...are good. We want our children to ignore the words and not to let them injure our hearts. Words, however, hold a power and strength unlike anything else.


I am linking with Erin here...check it out.

You are so right, Jen. Sometimes I think of that phrase and think nothing can be further from the truth. Thanks for linking up today :)

Agreed. Sometimes names are just as hard as the sticks and stones.

I think words can hurt so much more thean sticks and stones....teaching our kids how to rise above that is tricky.
