The 5 Best Ways to Praise Your Children
- Tell the truth.
Even young children can see right through false praise. Your best strategy is to be honest,
and diplomatic when commenting on your children's ability. If your child is learning to dive and does an
awkward belly flop, don't say, "What a beautiful dive!" Instead try: "I see you're working on your diving.
" By not defining the action as good or bad, you're being truthful while letting your child know he or she has your attention.
- Point out the positives. It's easy to fall into the pattern of pointing out your children's mistakes while overlooking
their successes. However, when you make an extra effort to praise your children's achievements and good efforts, you'll help
reinforce those qualities. Perhaps say, "You really focused on completing your Chinese school homework today. You should be
so proud of yourself!" Tell your children that they should be proud of themselves as bilingual
and it will inspire them to do the same thing again.
- Focus on the feat. Young children have a hard time distinguishing between who they are and what they do.
Instead of commending your child by saying, "You were good in the class" praise the action with, "Your classroom
participation was great this week." This helps young children understand the behavior that earned them a compliment.
- Use body language. Nonverbal cues are a great way to express your approval. A smile or a hug can be less distracting
than words. If you say, "You're writing Chinese very well," your children will stop to look up at you. But if you give them
a gentle rub on the back, they'll get the message that you're proud of them and keep writing.
- Emphasize the effort, not the outcome. When your children are learning a new language, don't comment on how well they
complete the task. Instead, compliment their enthusiasm and progress. For example, "You worked really hard both in class and
at home, and I noticed you're starting to speak Mandarin better."
By being genuine and specific with praise and encouragement, you can build your children's self-confidence while teaching them about
the importance of bilingual. Try to eliminate persistent negativity in your household and put the focus on all the wonderful,
positive things your children are doing instead.
