Your Words Project Your Priorities. Praise Effort!

YOUR WORDS ARE TELLING. WHAT YOU SAY AND HOW YOU SAY IT SENDS A POWERFUL MESSAGE TO YOUR VALUES AND PRIORITIES. When you praise effort and willingness to try new things, you project a respect for work ethic and determination. Your kids learn what matters or what you value. When you only praise a goal, success, or beauty, you send a suggestion that only #1 is worthy. I know few if any parents want to send that message, so remember to praise the process, the effort, and the perseverance your kids display. It’s those traits that will lead them to a lifetime of happiness and success
