Person vs. Process Praise

toddlers_news

I like what this research is showing.  Although I can’t say that I have been a great “processor”, I can say that I have heaped a lot of praise on my teenager which I hope was a good mix.  I, however, do believe person praise can be extremely rewarding in letting them know that they ARE simply amazing for being who they are.  I think that’s a much-needed foundation for being.  Nevertheless, in moving forward, I will most definitely consciously incorporate this concept more into all that he does.

Babies whose efforts are praised become more motivated kids
