Words mean something.
However, first we must agree on what they mean.
Definition of Terms
Before we can effectively communicate with our kids we must agree on the proper definition of terms. In a day where common terms are given new uncommon definitions, illogical and sanctioned by the powers that be no less, it’s never been more important to clarify terms with our kids.
There’s no time right now to go over all the terms that are being redefined, but certainly you are already aware of many. Love, hate, racist, male, female, right, wrong, and the term friend are just a few words that are commonly abused. Take the word “friend” for example. Your kids should know what a true friend is. It’s not an unknown digital acquaintance who likes your stuff on Instagram.
