Did you know that words hurt just as much as sticks and stones? Hurtful words wrinkle our hearts and it's hard to get those wrinkles back out once they are there. We read the fabulous book Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon and every time Ronald Durkin wrinkled Molly's heart we wrinkled ours. Then we fixed it back up again with a little bit of tape and a lot of kind words. Some favorites were: "You can come and play with us!" "I love you!" "Can I help you with that?"
