You Can Catch More Flies With Honey Than With Vinegar
I strongly believe the key to any relationships is positive, thoughtful, intentional, loving communication. When we allow anger and/or heightened emotions or volume take over us we forfeit the game. No points.
Let’s take parenting for example: reacting to an issue with a toddler only teaches them to be angry or frustrated. Whereas, softly and respectfully explaining the correct way to the child trains them for appropriate behavior.
If we don’t teach them, how will they know?? How on earth would a 2,3,4, or 5 year old know the correct way to behave without a proper example and intentional instruction?
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
