Here’s a tidy little list of positive things you can say to your child to make his or her day! (Try to make it 4:1–four positive comments to every critical one.)
- I knew you could do it.
- Now you’ve got it.
- You’re on your way.
- Nothing can stop you now.
- What an imagination.
- That’s got to feel great to accomplish that!
- You must be very proud of yourself!
- You figured it out.
- You’re really growing up!
- I love you!
Make your child’s day–give him/her all the positives you can think of–and while you’re at it, enjoy how great it makes YOU feel to give them!
