This is a very interesting article from Child & Nature Alliance of Canada on why we should stop using the words “Be Careful!”.
In short, “Be careful!” can mean so much, but without the specific details, it can also be meaningless. And when we hear something over and over and over again, we all start to tune out, don’t we?
It’s definitely worth stopping for 5 mins to take in this article. We’d love to hear if you start making these changes in vocabulary with your children and how it works for you.
