Even when the baby is in the stomach you can touch your stomach and talk to your baby. Tell her you love her, she will be great, can’t wait to hold her and care for her.

What Your Words Can Do To Your Baby
Your words can change the course of your baby’s life for the better or for the worst.
The tongue is a small part of the body which can do a lot of good or destruction. Can be used to uplift and create trust and confidence and can also cause destructions if used badly.
Keep negative opinions to yourself. Do not be quick to talk, think first and talk to yourself before talking to someone else to compose yourself.
The mouth speaks what the heart stores in. As a parent ensure you speak words that uplift your child and not tear them down.
Sometimes your child can do acts that annoy you but do not be quick to curse as once that word is out of your mouth it can never be taken back.
Where Do Children Learn From?
Children learn from their parents before they enroll in school. They can learn good manners, etiquette and polite words at home. Doesn’t need any training for parents to teach this.
Your child can be rude, speaking with food while eating, picking their nose, interrupting grownups as they speak (unless it’s an emergency), throwing tantrums as you shops, and the list is long we cannot exhaust them.
The important thing is how to handle your child positively and training them to respect your rules.
Personally, I talk to my children, my main goal is to ensure even when correcting them am awakening the greatness within them making them feel they are great and important.
When you notice your correction is going overboard, take a breather, retreat and come back when you cool down.
It doesn’t hurt, anger can translate to negative energy which you do not want to expose your children too. Do not be that parent that your child fears instead of loving due to your harsh words.
