The Sting Of Shame Lasts A Lifetime

Never shame your kids to try to motivate them. Shame hurts, even more than a slap. In fact, the sting of shame can last for a lifetime in the form of low self esteem and self worth. Motivate your kids with positive encouragement. “I know you can do it!,” or “Knowing you, you’ll get it done.” is far better than, ” You disappoint me” or “If you weren’t so lazy, you would be a better student.” Your words create trust and fortify as they motivate. Use them wisely.
