Affirming Your Kids

Affirm and honor your kids with phrases like, “Knowing you, you’ll come up with a solution!” or “I like the way you help your brother!”. Kids love to hear, “Your hard work is sure paying off–keep it up!” Affirmation highlights the process, not the product. When you value effort, so will your child. Substitute the phrase, “how many points did you score” with “Did you have fun?” or “Did you work hard?”
