Before You Punish A Child, See This

See, there is a story of a major league baseball player who’s speaking to inmates in prison. One of the inmates asks him, “How did you become a professional ballplayer sir?” to which he says, “You know, I think it started when I was a boy. I will play catch with my dad and he would always say ‘You keep throwing the ball like that son and you’ll end up in the major leagues one day,’ ‘You keep swinging a bat like that son and you’ll end up in the major leagues one day,’ and here I am, A professional ballplayer.” The room became quiet and the inmate who asked the question, he said, “You know, the same thing happened to me. When I was a boy my father told me that I was good for nothing and that one day, I would end up in prison and here I am.” Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me, WRONG! See, words can cut deeper and faster, longer than any sword known to man. I still haven’t forgotten what they told me as a kid the (the) teasing the insecurities that it created. Have you? Consider the story of a little girl. She’s in the grocery store with her mother and she drops a bottle of milk onto the floor breaking it. The mother says “You stupid child. Why did you do that?” Consider the story of another little girl who’s in the grocery store with her mother. She drops the bottle of milk onto the ground breaking it and this mother says “THAT was a very stupid thing you did” Which child do you think will grow up to have a healthier self-image and more self-confidence? The one who was – who was called stupid or the one whose action was called stupid? See, it is important to be mindful of the words that we use to our – our friends, our families, our loved ones, and strangers because sticks and stones CAN break our bones but words can break our hearts. And if we’re not careful, It can shatter our dreams. Hey guys, thank you so much for watching that video.

  1. I don't know this has also happened to you when I study for 1 hr my mum will not look.nor appreciate that but just for 1 sec like really 1 sec she will start her recording blah blah blah

  2. A guy said,"Sticks and stones might break my bones but words can never hurt me" So I threw I dictionary at him and broke his rib

    Jk that's not true

  3. Nobody:
    Literally Nobody:
    Me after getting a wound at my arm
    Mom: It's okay, it's far from your heart.

    Me when got a cold
    Mom: iT's bEcAuSe oF tHaT DaMn pHoNe!

  4. tell it to the kids, if you say that at school enough… wait a minune i'll explain ,myself

    so, Dave (boyinaband) one said:"They(schools) say it’s not the kids, the parents are the problem

    Then if you taught the kids to parent that’s the problem solved then!
    anyways everyone watching (90%+) are teens.
    anyways smart thing to watch.

  5. When I don't listen one time my mom ask me something, she would scream that no one deserves a child like this, well that must've hurt

  6. The thing is that my mom is unfair to me and not my brother just days ago she said that he couldn't get on the phone he did it everyday and riding care but when I got my stuff it was a problem and she knows I'm soft and I saw her say anything that I ask you to do you can't do it and that next time I thought I have send depression ? to me but most of the time I'm hyped but some times sad and my mom tells at me and I instaly cry …school is better than home

  7. Whats the difference between a person being stupid and the persons action being stupid?
    A stupid person is determine by his actions, which in turn have to be stupid.
    Thats what stupid means – you act stupid enough, YOU are stupid.
    What would be the definition of a stupid person if not that the actions of that person were stupid.
    That would be like saying "My feelings are happy" rather than "Im happy" and thinking its any different.
    None of that bullcrap.

  8. My mom been screaming and yelling at me for the smallest of mistakes and once tried to literally drag me outside of the house because of me cutting my hair a bit. My father? Said that his sports was more important than me. My big brothers? At school. Now then…I was 4 years old when that happened. A mere 4 years old. You at that age don't know any better. So then, why should I ever forgive her even when she said sorry? The sorry wasn't even a good one. She was laughing at me and say sorry with such a tone that it couldn't even be taken seriously. She says I shouldn't hate her or hold anything against her. Who is wrong? Me or my mom? Sorry for the personal story though.

  9. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words are merely the smallest element of language capable of containing meanings and isolation and as such could never directly produce the 4000 Newton’s per square centimeter required to break bones

  10. Here is a nice speech by a certain someone:
    “Sticks and stones can break your bones, but words can break your heart, but even worse, actions can break your soul.”

  11. Me show this video to my parents


    Mom: puf nothing you just gonna do it again
