There are some things we can take from NVC, if we so wish. I am just exploring and it has already given me new tools, actually, I don’t feel limited by it. It has helped me be more mature and measured in my advocacy.
What I do find limiting is when people expect me to be all NVC all the time, which is not going to happen any time soon. This is not about that.
I think you might also agree that the reaction from the outraged mother gave you an opportunity to explain to her what your slogan meant!
