You can never underestimate the value of praising your kids for their accomplishments. Whether big or small, their successes are worth celebrating. Recognizing them for a job well done at school or for beating the opposing team at football boosts their self-confidence.
How do you praise your kids? Just be sincere, and try not to overdo it. Young as they are, kids do sense it if you’re just trying to butter things up with your praise. Sometimes, even a simple pat on the back or a warm hug sends them the message that you are proud of what they’ve done.
Kids would do anything and everything just to get noticed by their parents. You owe them the attention they truly deserve.
