Sometimes when I’m reading online class discussion boards for my education classes I find that one post that makes me facepalm so hard it takes a good few minutes to recover.
Tonight’s discussion was about People First Language (If you don’t know what that is, google it.) and someone made the comment, “I guess the old saying sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me just isn’t working anymore.”
I’m sorry, but can you please remind me when that phrase ever worked, especially in regards to children with disabilities??
They maybe should think about going into ANY profession that doesn’t involve children.
