Encourage a child

“I appreciate your help!”

“ Wow! You work  really hard! Here is 5 bucks! You have earned it”

“ You seem to have mastered it ! Please teach me MASTER !”

When a child does something helpful, the most meaningful and effective response we can give is “Thanks!” More appropriate than “Good job,” thanking children for their help conveys the value of it. Instead of praising what a child has done as “good,” communicate your genuine gratitude for it. After all, that’s the true reason help is good! It is that appreciation that allows children to feel how important their contributions are—how important they are—to the family. Children are filled with a sense of their own goodness. Telling a child thank you for his help is no less positive than telling him good job, but the difference is significant.#encourage #child_care #support
