T.H.I.N.K.

Claire’s friend Lisa is a school teacher. Lisa was telling me about an acronym she is teaching her students this year. It’s useful checklist for when you’re considering what to say to someone else:

  • Is it Thoughtful?
  • Is it Helpful?
  • Is it Interesting?
  • Is it Necessary?
  • Is it Kind?

 

I think this is a lovely thing to teach kids. And it’s something we should all keep in mind as adults in the “big bad world”.

 

How many times a day do you speak without thinking?

 

Can you recall something you’ve said that makes you cringe?

 

So be thoughtful. Be helpful. Be kind.

 

In other words, don’t be a douchebag!
