Quote # 18

"Let your children overhear you saying complimentary things about them to other adults."

Even though I get along better with my mom, I remember my dad being better at this. He would always boast about how I was such a talented writer. I could only stand there and blush. When I started playing the piano he would tell people how great I was, and how great of a singer my sister was. Said we should be an act together. haha! I definitely plan on praising my kids around other people openly.


EDIT:

I'm not talking about bragging. I'm talking about a healthy praise, not a competition with other parents on whose child is best at what. :)
