Parents Impact With Toddler Praise
There’s no question that praise can be confidence-building. While the overall amount of praise didn’t seem to matter… the type of praise did. The words you choose may have a big impact on your child’s future motivation and self-esteem.
Toddlers whose parents praised their efforts more than they praised them as individuals had a more positive approach to challenges five years later. They were more persistent and believed they could continue to learn and improve.
