Reason 435 why I love homeschooling: science experiments.
.
Today, we are talking about the impact that water and light have on plants.  We create 2 control groups while we sprout a bean.  My girl is pretty confident in her hypothesis.
.
Then we decide to try another experiment.  This one is about the power of words.  We have 2 beans.  Good bean. Bad bean.  Both will get the same exposure to sunlight and water.  Here's the deal.
.
Bad bean is yelled at, insulted, shamed, and criticized.
.
Good bean is nurtured, praised, and encouraged. .
My girl hypothesizes that Bad Bean won't sprout.  We shall see.
.
Here are a few things I overhear her saying to Bad Bean
.
I wouldn't eat you.  You are disgusting and taste horrible."
.
"You'll always be less than other beans.  You'll live in their shadow.
.
"You suck.  You'll never grow.  Go die in a hole."
.
She doesn't like talking to Bad Bean this way.  She asked me to do it, instead. 💗
