C.L.E.A.N. Talk

I didn't get a chance to tell you about my Friend magazine tip for September, so here it is! 

As children return to school, it's important to remind them of the kind of language that is acceptable --and what is not.

After reading the counsel given by Elder L. Tom Perry in the September 2009 Friend, we created the acronym "C.L.E.A.N." to remind ourselves to use "clean" language.

Can you guess what C.L.E.A.N. stands for?

Go to the Friend Magazine's Weekly Thoughts & Tips page to find out!
(My CLEAN Talk tip is at the bottom of that page.)


  1. I think you would really enjoy reading this post by a friend of mine on this very subject. In fact, I KNOW you would enjoy reading it.

    Bad Words

  2. I am amazed at what is accepted as ok to say these days..definitely not clean.

  3. clever and good advice for children of any age-including us adults!

  4. I love what you wrote. So simple, and yet so needed, especially as standards continue to backslide in society as a whole. Also, as Lin said - applicable to people of any age.
