What is in a name?

I’ve seen some of the newest baby and children’s clothing lately with very negative labels. I don’t think putting a shirt on your precious baby with the name ” jr. pimp squad” is harmless. Words have a power to change our beliefs and attitudes. A negative message can have a subconscious effect that parents are not aware of.

We are so overloaded with negative language that it is difficult to be sensitive to the power of language. Maria Montessori even knew there was power in labels we give our chidren when she said-
“Never speak ill of the child in his presence or absense”
