podcast praise strategy Feb 09, 2021

Praise, praise praise. 

You hear it talked about in the positive parenting world, you hear it talked about at your child’s daycare, you hear it talked about from your child’s pediatrician, and you hear it talked about in the online space as a way to prevent unwanted behavior and reduce the likelihood of those unwanted behaviors. 

And you’re probably wondering, “okay, even if praise DOES work, won’t I be spoiling my kid with all of this praise? Won’t they rely on it and not be able to cope if they DON’T have it? Won’t they become prideful and self-righteous as they age and mature? I don’t want my kid to be the kid that always NEEDS to earn a ribbon, a prize, or a reward.” 

These are the thoughts and questions that we think to ourselves as we’re lying in bed at night, but we rarely speak them to another human being.  So today on the show I’m going there. I’m answering those questions that you contemplate deep at night or while between feeding the kids and doing the dishes. 

Let’s talk about what praise really is and how it can affect our kids. Let’s go to the show.
