Careless Words=Longterm Mental Harm!

There was a study done in 1939 where orphan children without stutters were influenced to believe they had stutter problems. All participants were affected by this and spoke slower and became shy. After the study, some kids developed stutter problems permanently. This study is known as the "Monster Study" because of what it did to those kids. Take this to our own lives and let us apply it. Suddenly telling a child they are stupid, a loser, never going to amount to anything, and a weirdo carries a lot of weight. Think of the negative things you tell yourself. Our words to others or ourselves can unintentionally give us limits and problems. Treat your mouth and internal voice like they are loaded guns. Think about what you are going to say before you say it!
