It was innocent, but hurtful. Two years ago, my daughter, Bridgette, who was four-years-old at the time, asked a friend why she looked like a monkey. My friend took it in stride, but I was completely mortified. Oh, how I wish I’d had tacky box that day or better yet, the day before that.
Tacky Box is the invention of the beautiful Chris Kent Phelps. She created the three-piece set to help parents redirect and even prevent tacky language and behavior. The set encourages kids to be kind and take personal responsibility for the things they say. It comes with a wooden box branded with the Tacky Box logo, a 32-page illustrated book (Max’s Magnificent Choice for boys and Margo’s Magnificent Choice for girls) and a special notepad for writing down tacky words and actions.
So, let me be the first to say it. I know some adults who need a Tacky Box.
Bridgy hasn’t decorated her box yet, but she has written nine tacky words and phrases down on the slips of paper including sut up (shut up).
