Busy Bees -and a peek into our learning…

 Experts say:

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

Comment:

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.

We wish you were there!
