The Power of Soft Words: Teaching Children About Gentle Communication

In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon imparted many wise teachings on how to live a good life. One of the verses that have always stood out to me is Proverbs 15:1, which says, “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” This verse highlights the importance of using soft words and gentle communication to avoid conflicts and anger.
