Sharing is caring!

Thankfully, my early childhood education background has helped me develop a strong belief in building a child’s confidence. And, I know how to praise a child with words — using positive compliments. Today I’d like to share with you my list of words of praise — 50 ways to praise your child.

Benefits to Praising a Child

There are so many benefits to praising a child. Complimenting a child is a great way to raise their self-esteem and reinforce good behaviour and actions. And, focusing on their efforts and achievements gives them a positive sense of accomplishments, not negative thoughts or emotions. While our thoughts tend to be more negative, we can turn it around and instead, encourage our child with positive phases.
