Peeling off labels

There are so many labels put on children today that can be hurtful and, if allowed, can even limit how children grow. I’m thinking of labels such as  “inattentive,” “overactive,” or “impulsive” (or maybe a combination of these). 

I’ve learned through Christian Science that we don’t have to accept these labels—for children or for anyone. The first chapter of Genesis says, “God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” (verse 31). The only label we actually have to accept about ourselves or others is that God made us good—excellent, sound, reliable, well-behaved, healthy, and skillful.
