Type of situation: Your child shows you something he or she’s made
You are tempted to say: ‘ I love what you painted1 The colours you used are great!’
IT IS BETTER TO SAY: ‘That is a great start!’, ‘How you like it?’ ‘Do you think it is your best effort?’
This approach: – helps your child reflect on whether his work measures up to his / her expectations
SELF-ESTEEM comes form working hard toward a goal and feeling good about it. So while it is important to praise your child , it is even more meaningful if she/he learns to appreciate his/her own effort and its result.
