HELP YOUR CHILD THINK WITH 6 INTELLIGENT QUESTIONS

 

The discouraged child, who compares himself to others, may think, “I’m not smart.” He may even give up without trying. But he doesn’t have to.

When the bright child is asked, “Why didn’t you get all A’s?” she may fear trying new things in case she fails. How can parents prevent children from feeling discouraged and fearful? Plenty!

Parents have the power to promote smart thinking.

By asking the right questions you can help your child realize he has an amazing brain and that, like a muscle, it loves exercise.

7 Family Discussion Questions Boost Kids' Self-Image

Family Reading SMALL
FUN DISCUSSIONS WITH KIDS PROMOTE FAMILY UNITY!

Praise or criticism, which motivates kids to do their best? Too much criticism often makes people bitter not better. Research advises us to give 3-6 compliments for every negative comment because kind remarks help lessen the sting from complaints.

If you must disapprove of your child’s behavior, there are 3 rules:

  1. Do it privately.
  2. Be brief, no lectures.
  3. Suggest a positive behavior or solution.

Goal for Giving Praise

You don’t want your child to live for other people’s approval. A nickname for pure approval seekers is "Love Slob."No one wants to hear their child called a "Love Slob."

Your goal in using praise is to increase your child’s inner motivation which means they do their best because that’s their positive self-image. It’s who they know they are.

Use our gift today which includes the poem, “I Caught You Being Good Today,” by downloading, discussing, and getting your children to answer the 7 discussion questions.

If you do, you’ll find out:

  1. How criticism feels to your children.
  2. Whether they notice each others mistakes more than their good qualities.
  3. What would motivate them the most, criticisms or compliments.
  4. If they’d like to focus on the good in each other more often.
  5. How they’d like to share with each member the good they see.
