“Om nom nom nom nom, C is for Cookie! And today is Cookie Monster Day!”
Everyone seems to love Cookie Monster. If you’ve never heard of him, he’s the blue, googly-eyed Muppet from Sesame Street who is obsessed with devouring handfuls of crumbly, crunchy, delicious cookies. And if it weren’t for his love of cookies, he might still be known as Sid. We kid you not. His original name was Sid!
In a 2010 Tweet Sid shared, “Me wasn’t born with name ‘Cookie Monster’. It just nickname dat stuck.”
Thankfully Sid was a good sport about the whole “monster” thing, but we know that words have power.
Today, talk to your child about being mindful when it comes to words. Explain what bullying is, the signs of bullying, and find out whether or not it’s going on in their life. Encourage your child to only speak words that are kind, loving, positive, uplifting, encouraging, and life-giving to others. And for all the parents out there already raising their children to respect others with kindness and acceptance, today you deserve a cookie!
