Praise the Accomplishment

Praise the Accomplishment:  In acknowledging a child's choice to participate it is important to praise the accomplishment rather than to make a global comment such as "Good Girl" or "Good Boy."  When the latter typ of praise is used frequently, there is the danger that the child might interpret the absence of such praise to mean, "I'm a bad boy," or I"m not good enough."  Examples of appropiate praise include:
  • Great job, You played the drum!
  • You're good at that!
  • You did it!
