Which words are harmful to clarity?

I'll send another note on Sunday with more details, but the October 15 chat will be about avoiding words that harm peace or unschooling or the attitude needed for those.

In a discussion I was just in, I wrote
As to who "deserves" to be treated how and who is "sacrificing," those terms can do damage. If you "deserve" something, where do you appeal to make sure you get it? If you have "sacrificed…" what are you sacrificing?
That made me think of Heather Booths' request to discuss words (and it might've come up last week, but last week's chat got going and didn't pause, after a while).

If you have a story of changed thinking that involves words or phrases, bring it Wednesday!

If you're reading this by e-mail and you need a path to the chatroom, click on the title to get to the blog, which has a tab up to the left with the link and password.
