WORDS ARE NOT FOR HURTING BOARD BOOK
Product ID: BEH-068
Selected as a "Teaching Tool" in Teaching Tolerance magazine
As children get older, they learn and use more words, including hurtful words. While our Words Are Not for Hurting Board Book was written for children up to age 3, this expanded version is for ages 47. This is a time of increasing vocabularies and growing awareness of how much words matter. Children learn that they need to think before they speak, and then choose what to say and how to say it. This book makes the correlation between hurtful words and feelings of anger, sadness, and regret. It also provides positive ways for children to reply when others say unkind words to them, and reinforces the importance of saying I'm sorry, two little words that can help a lot. Includes activities and discussion starters that parents, caregivers, and educators can use when working with children.
