Showing your approval in an on-going way takes a many-faceted approach. First be sure to make your positive messages specific, exactly about what your child has done well. Then be sure you pay attention when and where it really counts.
Encourage your child with your loving presence.
Attend as many enrichment classes, special events or parent meetings as you can. These on-the-site visits mean the world to your child. Seeing your glances of support are powerful motivators. Sometimes just noticing you as a caring person in the room is all your child needs to accomplish a goal or complete a task. While almost anyone can accompany your child to different places, it takes someone who cares to make the difference.
