You’re Doing Great (Acceptance, Affirming words, Building up)

Don’t remember where I read it a year or two ago but the idea was basically just to tell your children they’re doing great. They get so many messages about what they should do, how they should behave, etc.. My girl certainly gets such messages from me – picking things up, saying hello and than you, brushing teeth, sharing when she has plenty, etc. Anyway, yesterday, I told my girl, “You know… you’re doing just great.” She smiled from deep inside. I then proceeded to tell her many things she does or has mastered that I think are wonderful. I’m not saying it altered her destiny! Just think it’s a good thing to tell your child every once in a while
