careful how you praise your kids

It’s not surprising that what we tell our kids has such profound impact on them, but it is surprising that a seemingly positive statement can have a negative effect. An interesting article on a complex issue, and interesting from a parents or educators point of view.

    Insightful article … it’s a keeper for the future … if I ever get blessed with kids. Or else I guess it’s great for educators too … the art of encouragement.
