Is there such a thing? When my step-sister was little I noticed my step-mom heavy with the praise - for weird stuff, it used to drive me nuts "Good saying 'thank-you' honey!" "Good asking!" "Good listening!" "Good" this, good that - all the time! Now she was over the other day and I heard her say to our dd (who is 5 mo!) "Good sneezing!" I know it beats never praising, but isn't this a bit much? Shouldn't a kid have somewhat normal conversations and interactions? Any thoughts?
