Ah, those wonderful pearls of wisdom.. I'm cynical and don't plan on passing those ones on!

I've got several but, "Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never harm me," is the biggest load of bullshit parents feed kids. Words can hurt and, if used efficiently, they can even ruin a life. Just ask the girl who was Facebook bullied by her classmate's mom and ignored by her own parents. Oh, wait, you can't because she killed herself because of words that were said and words that were left unsaid.
