Sometimes praise and encouragement sound like the same thing. Encouragement helps children to do their best. Parents need to be cheerleaders in their children’s lives, but they also need to be a reality check. Encouragement is meant both to acknowledge an accomplishment or an attempt to do something and to promote further development. Real encouragement helps children develop skills for self evaluation, and find the quality in their work.
