Kid’s are the sponges of the world and they listen to everything we say, but what about the things we don’t say?. I find that it is much easier to tell someone about all the bad they have done, rather then acknowledging the good. How can our children grow and encourage one another if we, as adults do not encourage them first and always.
I understand that some kids can be little monsters at times, but they are still learning and discovering self. No one is perfect, i know i’m not. Think of when someone complimented you. Did that not make you feel good? or lifted your spirits? Lets be the up-lifters to our children today, building their confidence and letting them know they are important, because we never know all the bad that a child may hear on any given day.
