How to Teach Your Children to Think Before They Speak

I use this verse with my children to explain we must use our words to build each other up, not tear each other down. 

Words are very powerful. They are a reflection of what is in our hearts and minds. Once said, they can not be taken back. 

As part of their First Communion workshop at school this week, Alyssa and her classmates will be using tubes of toothpaste to illustrate this point. The students will squeeze toothpaste out from the tube and find that it does not go back in -- just like words once they are spoken. What a great visual!

Every time you have a thought -- and before the words come out of your mouth -- you have an opportunity to evaluate whether they will build up or tear down.
