I am doing some work on myself which is revealing a heavy reliance on external validation... I see myself trying to boost y daughter's confidence by telling her how great I think she is, like my own mom did for me.
I remember some conversations here about alternatives to praise. Can someone please point me to some resources for learning about the different styles? My daughter is 3.5 and is quite amazing, of course. ;) I need some help with language...
"You're so great." vs. "I like what you did."???
