MEET AT THEIR LEVEL
Don’t stand above them like a towering center-back, level up to them to see all of their accomplishments up close and they can see your smile when they get it right.
GET YOUR GOOD TONE
When you recognize your child’s accomplishments, your tone of voice really matters. Speak in short sentences and at a higher pitch, to really get that “good job” instead.
You cannot be reserved for over celebrating in this world! Don’t be afraid to go there with silly faces and noises – they make everyone laugh… especially the little ones.
IT IS NOW
Kids live in the moment, so celebrate their achievements in the moment and double them – go for the action replay!
MIRROR THEIR BEHAVIOR
Kids love it when you just copy their behavior … it builds their confidence and turns learning into a game.

Like footballers, kids can be bright one day… and look shabby another. Be patient, they will score again!
