Facts vs. emotionally charged conversation

I’m conscious of raising my daughter with facts about life without adding in piles of my opinions.

Rather than saying, “Yay! The sun is out!” or “Ugh, it’s cold and rainy out,” I’m going with “It’s a sunny day” or “It’s a rainy day.” They all get the same weight. Sunny, rainy, cloudy, windy, and snowy. Those are the facts. As she gets older, she can decide if she has an opinion about them.

Which makes me realize all the ways we stray away from facts, and emotionally charge a lot of our conversation.

Is it beneficial or not?
