Toddlers - Baby-sitting & Childcare

How did the phrase “Use your words” come in relation to young children?

Posted in Toddlers on 30th October 2010

Question by Daisyhill : Where did the phrase “Use your words” come in relation to children ?
Whenever I hear Americans say that young children “Use the words” when the child is going crazy … Where does it come? I have to admit that irritates the heck out of me! Why not say “Calm down and tell me what is wrong” or “Calm down and tell me what you want” That’s what I tell my own children. Use “his words” is somewhat patronizing …. Best answer:

I agree. I am an American and that sounds stupid. When my son is being a brat and whining, I’ll tell him to calm down and tell me what is happening. Or simply say, “Quit whining. What do you want?” or even “I can not help when you’re acting that way. Now tell me what is wrong.” However, “use their words” sounds stupid. It’s like, duh.

I have an 8 month old and bought Elizabeth Pantley’s “cry sleep solution”, but the book supplier sent me the child rather than the book especially for babies. If the hassle of cutting up or content is very similar? Best answer:
