• “Opprobrium” is my word for WordWednesday.


• Noun: Doing something that brings disgrace, public disgrace, conduct considered grossly wrong or vicious, contempt, reproach


• Pronunciation – uh-PROH-bree-um


•  Years ago, it was not unusual for adults to publicly or privately shame a child to discipline them for their “Opprobrium” behavior.
