10 Compliments Your Kids Need to Hear from You

10 Compliments Your Kids Need to Hear from You

Kids need to hear compliments from their parents so that their confidence and self esteem remains boosted. Here are 10 compliments your kids need to hear from you.

Whether a child or an adult, one would definitely feel nice when one gets to hear a compliment from someone. Moreover when the compliment comes from someone very close, it makes one feel great or much more than that. When parents compliment their kids, they feel valued and they get motivation to do something better.

Even children have targets to achieve in their own way. Their satisfaction level goes to a soaring height when parents compliment them for their hard work and goal achievement. Studies have shown that parents can help their children gain confidence by praising them in different ways. Given below are the 10 compliments that your kids need to hear from you.

1. Complimenting For Being Part of the Family

A child would surely feel great when parents compliment them for being part of the family. This will give the child a feeling of security and make him or her understand that the family has a special place for him or her.

2. Character Compliment

We live in a society where we cannot expect integrity from everyone so when we observe that our child has shown kindness, honesty, reliability, fellow feeling and trustworthiness it is time to compliment them without hesitation. We must appreciate our child for the good values he or she has shown so that they have these feelings consistently in them.

3. Compliment Their Work Quality

Parents must compliment the child when they finish a work the right way especially when they manage to do a work independently. This helps in boosting the self-esteem of the child and they learn to take responsibilities.

4. Compliment the Looks

Parents are responsible for the overall growth of their children. Parents cannot limit their appreciation for the children for the work they do but parents must compliment their child about their looks and their body language as well. Parents may not like the way their children dress up but praising their dress and looks would help the child to become more confident in a crowd. 

5. Complimenting the Effort

 It could be studying hard for the school grades or practicing hard for a football match, parents cannot always expect their child to become a winner. Whatever is the end result, kids feel great when their efforts are praised.

6. Complimenting Their New Achievement

Parents must compliment their kids even if they have achieved something small. Whether it is a better grade in academics or a goal saving in a football match, when parents place their compliments rightly, the positive ball in their children keep rolling and consistent results can be achieved.

7. Compliments for the Friends

Pre-teen and teen age children create a new world with their friends. Though they make friends of their own choice, they do want their parents to approve their friends. So, parents have the responsibility to show that they like their kids’ friends and speak about them in a positive manner.

8. Compliment for Being a Great Sibling

Kids feel responsible and get inspired when parents praise them for being a great sister or brother. For example, when the kid is taking good care of his or her sibling or puts in effort for peacemaking during a fight, a positive compliment from parents is a must.

9. Compliment for the Attitude

A kid must be praised for the positive attitude he or she has shown and saved the parents from getting trapped in a bad situation. Compliment from their parents will inspire them to show the right attitude in many such situations in future. 

10. Compliment for Being an Inspiration

Kids feel extraordinary when their parents praise them for being an inspiration. Parents must compliment their children for their courage, energy and creativity and tell them how kids inspire them.

Your kid would be the happiest listening to the aforesaid compliments.
