Children Work for Praise
Here is something TestingMom.com posted on our Facebook page and it got tons of “shares.” I just love it. Here is the source: http://www.offgridquest.com/education/texas-school-triples-recess-time-and-see
One of the smartest thing that Dr. Marion Blank ever said to me was: Children work for praise. Remember that. It’s so simple and yet so profound. When you are working with your child, playing with your child, raising your child, you don’t have to give them fancy rewards for doing a good job or being a good kid. You, praising them, is about the most effective and valuable thing you can do to give your child confidence and belief in him or herself. Remember that! It’s quick. It’s easy. It’s free. It works!
