Here's why it's so important to praise your child

As parents, we all want the best for our children. We want them to grow up to be happy, confident, and successful adults. However, sometimes in our efforts to ensure that our children are disciplined and well-behaved, we forget to praise them for their achievements and contributions. Praising your child can significantly impact their self-esteem and overall well-being. So, here’s why it’s so important to praise your child.

The importance of praising your child.

When a child receives praise from their parent, it helps them feel valued and appreciated. This sense of belonging is crucial to a child’s development and can help them build confidence and self-esteem. Praise can also help to reinforce positive behaviors and encourage your child to continue to do well in the future. Additionally, receiving praise can help build a stronger bond between parent and child. When children feel loved and appreciated, they are more likely to open up and share their thoughts and feelings with their parents.

Suggestions for Parents

It’s essential to praise your child appropriately and at the right time. Here are a few suggestions for parents on how to praise their kids and when to do it:

  1. Be specific: When you praise your child, be specific about what they did well. For example, instead of saying, “Good job,” say, “Great work on finishing your homework on time.” This helps your child understand exactly what they did well and reinforces that positive behavior.
  2. Praise effort, not just results: It’s important to praise your child’s effort for something, not just the outcome. Even if your child doesn’t succeed, praise them for trying their best. This helps your child understand that effort and hard work are valued and appreciated, regardless of the outcome.
  3. Praise them in public: When your child does something noteworthy, praise them in front of others. This can be a powerful motivator for your child and help build their confidence. It also helps to reinforce positive behaviors and encourages your child to continue to do well in the future.

Praise is the most powerful parenting tool.

According to Dr. Laura Markham, a child psychologist, “Praise is one of our most powerful parenting tools. When we praise our children, we show them their efforts are valued and appreciated. This, in turn, helps them develop a positive self-image and build their self-confidence.” It’s important to remember that praise can significantly impact your child’s self-esteem and overall well-being.

Adding Social Emotional Learning to your child’s learning plan.

Here's why it's so important to praise your child

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is essential to a child’s development. SEL teaches children to recognize and manage their emotions, build positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. Children who learn these skills are better equipped to handle stress, build healthy relationships, and succeed in school and beyond. SEL has been shown to positively impact academic achievement, mental health, and overall well-being. By incorporating SEL into their daily lives, parents can help their children develop the skills they need to thrive in all areas.
