H is for Hate – a Bad Word

According to the Wisdom of Lukas (4-year old grandson), you shouldn’t say “hate”. I think he’s probably right (and whoever told him that is too), but I do slip up. Lukas never misses a slip, though. He’s persistent. “Don’t say hate. That’s a bad word.”

In fact, whenever he’s caught me, I didn’t really *mean* hate – I probably meant something like: I’d rather not.

So I’m not convinced hate is never a good word, but being more precise with language is definitely a good idea.

Thanks, Lukie. I’m sure I’ve got a lot more to learn from you.
