Encouraging Words for Kids this Thanksgiving
Praise is the greatest encouragement for a child. Encouragement to a child creates curiosity and fascination, which then sparks imagination. Imagination matters, because it influences development. According to Sir Ken Robinson, an expert in early childhood learning and development, “imagination is the source of all human achievement”.
Words are powerful! They can either be used to inspire the best in those around us or they can be a negative force for destruction. Sometimes finding the right words at the right time is difficult. Listed below are examples of things to say to build up the children around you.
