An Observation

Children love to be praised.  

Oh, Kalen, you cleaned up so well.  Thank you.”

Madelyn, the tofu and mushrooms you just cooked are amazing.  You are such a good cook.

Julian, you are an amazing reader.  You are incredible!”

Brayden, it was such a long first full day of kindergarten.   You are so brave.  You did so well, and I am so proud of you!”

Their faces light up with praise.

Their demeanor changes.

They feel loved and it shows.
