in Communication

At the risk of being redundant and repetitive, and redundant, let me say that tautology is the last thing children need from their parents, especially when they are in trouble. Whatever you have to say, whatever you do, avoid tautology. Try to say it only once!
— Tom Sturges, Parking Lot Rules & 75 Other Ideas for Raising Amazing Children

Say it once. Say it right. Get outta there. That’s among the nuggets of wisdom I have for communicators.

You want trouble? Double down on what you wrote to “explain it a little more.” That’s when you get snakebit.

I could go on. ‘Nuf said.
