Encouraging Our Kids

How often do we tell our kids we are proud of them, how well they are doing or compliment them on how they are working. I ran across this list earlier and checked my self as I ran down them. On a daily note make a point to compliment them on anything, if you see them struggle help take their mind of their struggle for a period of time and encourage them boost them up so that when they go back to what they are struggling with they will be motivated to conqueor the problem and work it as well.

If you find that you are not encouraging on a daily baisis I encourage using a post it note someplace you are liable to be and remind you to make some sort of encouraging comment daily. Try it and see what a difference you will make in your childs life or any child for that matter… Great encouragers noted below:
Blessings All!
