Have you ever tried to mask the bitter taste of medicine with a fruit juice?

The pleasant taste of something sweet does make the medicine easier to swallow. Mary Poppins shared a logical conclusion; it’s true, sugar will make the medicine go down. It also rings true when we have unpleasant news to share. Maybe you've said this...

‘First, let me give you the good news.’

When I was working with infants and toddlers, behavior problems were normal. I received wise advice from my employer at a Christian childcare center. He suggested that when talking to their parents, I first share something positive about the child. Sadly, I did not always remember to break the ice with praise for the child.

The soft approach is an act of kindness.

I can tenderly sugar coat my words. A good dose of TLC (tender loving care) builds strong relationships.

“A gentle answer turns away anger,
but a harsh word stirs up wrath.

The tongue of the wise makes knowledge attractive,
but the mouth of fools blurts out foolishness (Proverbs 15:1-2 HCSB).”

What kind of example am I leaving?

“She opens her mouth with wisdom
and loving instruction is on her tongue (Proverbs 31:26 HCSB).”

This is my desire.
