One of the best feelings you can have as a parent is the joy of watching your child accomplish something that’s difficult for him or her.
For some parents, this might entail watching the child overcome test anxiety and do well on an exam. For other parents, this accomplishment might even be as simple as watching the child tie his shoes and transition out the door easily.
Regardless of the reason, it’s a natural instinct to praise a child in a moment of accomplishment.
And it’s important for children to be celebrated, especially when they’ve worked so hard to complete a goal.
But how much praise is too much?
Where do you draw the line and stop celebrating the fact that little Sally was able to put her own socks on this morning…the third time she does it? The twelfth time? The seventy-fifth?
Check out this week’s 3-minute Mad2Glad Parenting Tip video to discover the right way to use praise.
Isn’t it a relief to know that you can’t go wrong with praising your child as long as the praise is being used to stretch your kid (promote growth) or shape good behaviors?
I encourage you to really pay attention to the things you’re praising your kids for. Use praise as a tool to motivate, encourage, and help your child reach new milestones, and I promise you will see your child become more independent.
Clearly, it’s important for kids to receive praise every now and then. But did you know the same is true for you?
