Reinforce Consciously

Key Points for Increasing Responsible Behavior
Point # 7:

Reinforce Consciously

Children who become used to uncon­di­tional praise lose sight of their sig­nif­i­cant accom­plish­ments. Parents need to reserve high praise for well earned achieve­ments. Most impor­tantly, chil­dren must be in touch with their per­sonal grat­i­fi­ca­tion as well as their parent’s pride. Praise is truly felt when a child under­stands what they did to earn it.
