Glenn O. Swing Tip of the Day

Hands

The way you praise your child affects how he’ll face challenges in school and in life.

To praise effectively, remember to:

 

  • Compliment your child often, but only when it’s deserved. By third grade, your child realizes that people are judged by their achievements. He knows when his actions deserve praise. You can lose your child’s trust by over-praising him.

     

  • Praise specific behavior. Make it clear which actions you’re complimenting. "I’m proud that you stuck with that tough math problem."

     

  • Focus on the process rather than the child. Say, "You put so much effort into your homework," not "You’re so smart for getting your homework done."
