“Mommy, I like you saying please”

Jared asked me what to do with his plate from breakfast. It was a paper plate, so I said, “Put it in the trash please”. He then said “Mommy, I like you saying please”. If you read my post about the parenting seminar, you will know that he was giving me descriptive praise. I’ve been working hard at giving the kids descriptive praise since attending this seminar. It has had a big impact on their behavior and it must be sinking in!
