How much of an impact do our words have? “We need to think before we speak because our words have power. Something negative that you say could affect a child for their whole life. You have no idea.” – Bailey
This is the final episode in our six part series on labeling children. Bailey has been sharing her story about how negative labels hurt her as a child. Here’s our full conversation about the impact our words have. You choose whether you speak life or speak death over your children. Which will you choose?
BAILEY SHARES MORE OF HER STORY
Bailey began sharing her story with us in Episode 83 called Stop Labeling Children: How Negative Labels Hurt. In this episode, she shares more about how easily we hurt other people with our words when we should choose to get to know them and to speak life over them.

MAKE CHILDREN FEEL VALUABLE WITH SPEAK LIFE BADGES
Speak Life Badges are a tool to help you speak life to your children. Using the suggested scripts as your guide, your words of life and the sticker award badges are a powerful duo to help you to encourage and motivate your children and to break any lies they might be believing.
As Annie said: I had been desperately praying and asking God to guide me in my parenting challenges when I was asked to try out Speak Life Badges. I had the most eye opening experience with this badge system. It helped me to see how praise and encouragement can not only get you better results, but also build your children up in their character! It is so easy to get into a routine of getting upset, but this really helped keep me on a better track!
As Erica said: Words seem so small but are so powerful and can completely change the way we view ourselves. I definitely recommend this fun book as a way to bless your kids and yourself!
Consider getting your child’s teacher a Speak Life Badges book as a Christmas or teacher gift. What better way to encourage and equip them to speak life to all of the children in their classroom including yours?
