"Some words are nice and others have teeth... And when you use those, you can cause others grief!" -Elle Grey from the story, WORDS
Words was the first story written by Elle Grey. Words tells the story of how the words we use can hurt others if we choose to use ones that aren't nice...and that we always have a choice.
It shows that when we use words to hurt others we then attract negativity back to ourselves! It even reminds our kids to choose kindness, not just when talking to others, but also when they talk to themselves! Positive self-talk can be very powerful!
