My new article Praising Your Children or Grandchildren
states praise works for all ages.
I believe in my heart that is true. What little things can be done so kids and grown know we are proud of them? I am sure I have told the story of how my dad put a short write up that mentioned me in his barber shop window. At first I was surprised because he was not the kind of man to do sort of thing. Then all I felt was pride.
What to you do to boost your child's ego or raise her up to a smile? My mom used to have people call me for party ideas, etc. Sometimes I felt a little put upon but it was a good feeling.
