Rethinking Word Choice

Nicky was admiring some kids’ creations at the park and it reminded me of a book I read years ago that really helped me understand the impact our words have on kids. One major take-away was replacing the saying, “I’m so proud of you” with “You should be so proud of yourself.” That little shift in words helps reinforce for kids the importance of self-love and self-motivation. I hope these kids were proud of their works of art in the park because Nicky said, “Wow Mommy. It’s beautiful!” Tags - #empowerkids #proudkids #learningthroughplay #kidsareartists #powerofwords #choicewords #modernlearningmom
