The power of words!

Below article is something that I came across in FB today. I post it here because I found there is a great practical message for every parent. I strongly recommend you to take a few minutes and read till end. It's worth it. Hats off to the writer. A brilliant job indeed!
This article got me thinking a lot! I know, as a parent I need to develop the skill of avoiding NOs and Don'ts in my conversations. I strongly have to work towards presenting don'ts, shouldn'ts and Nos through positive sentences. What's your take?

I remember my dad teaching me the power of language at a very young age. Not only did my dad understand that specific words affect our mental pictures, but he understood words are a powerful programming factor in lifelong success.

One particularly interesting event occurred when I was eight. As a kid, I was always climbing trees, poles, and literally hanging around upside down from the rafters of our lake house. So, it came to no surprise for my dad to find me at the top of a 30-foot tree swinging back and forth. My little eight-year-old brain didn't realize the tree could break or I could get hurt. I just thought it was fun to be up so high.
