LABELLED PRAISES

Sometimes, we get stuck in the loop of saying "good job!" or "great work!" to reinforce positive behaviour. This might sound repetitive over time and lose it's meaning because it's unclear what the child is being praised for.


Think of it like your partner saying "you're beautiful" vs "you look stunning when you smile". I'm sure the second phrase is more meaningful because you know exactly what's being appreciated.


Here's how you can provide some variety to your praises to make it more meaningful. It definitely gets easier over time, I promise.
