A phrase that kids often hear from their parents is: “Words Are Powerful!”  Usually when this is said it is when your kiddo has stepped over the line and used language in a hurtful or otherwise negative way.   In our house, we also constantly discourage negative phrases like “I can’t do that” or “That’s impossible.”   

Recently, we had the opportunity to test the power of the spoken word on a grueling hike in Mammoth.  Truth be told – we didn’t’ see many kids on this trail – certainly not Sophia’s age.  So when Eva and especially Sophia started to complain and whine when we still had a few miles left on our journey, Olga sprung into action and shared how we can shift the energy in our family just by uttering some simple phrases.  

Needless to say, this tactic worked and we not only made it back to the car but had so much fun on that last leg of our hike.   Eva shares the story in this episode — which we think your kids will love because it shows the power of words in the positive sense.  And if you are a family that loves the outdoors, we think you will find Olga’s strategy very helpful the next time your kiddos get tired and start to complain.  Enjoy!
