Did You Offer a Compliment Today?

Good Afternoon, Parents!

Today is like any other day.  It’s on a calendar.  You woke up and started doing things and at bedtime you will quit doing things so you can recharge yourself for tomorrow.  But will you take time today to make it unlike any other day by making someone else feel good about himself or herself?  As parents, we are all coaches for our children.  Good coaches take time to make their charges grow by improving their self-esteem and clarifying their personal view of their own abilities.  Does that sound a bit too technical and you think you don’t know how to do that, maybe?  NOT!

Bet every pancake and bottom dollar in the house you can do it!  Try this:

♥  WOW ♥ WAY TO GO ♥ SUPER♥ YOU’RE SPECIAL♥ OUTSTANDING ♥ EXCELLENT ♥ GREAT ♥ GOOD ♥ NOTHING CAN TOP THAT ♥ WELL DONE ♥ REMARKABLE ♥ I KNEW YOU COULD DO IT ♥ I’M PROUD OF YOU ♥ FANTASTIC ♥ SUPER STAR ♥ NICE WORK ♥ LOOKING GOOD ♥ YOU’RE ON TOP OF IT ♥ BEAUTIFUL ♥  NOW YOU’RE FLYING ♥ YOU’RE CATCHING ON ♥ NOW YOU’VE GOT IT ♥ YOU’RE INCREDIBLE ♥ BRAVO ♥ YOU’RE FANTASTIC ♥ HURRAY FOR YOU ♥ YOU’RE ON TARGET ♥ YOU’RE ON YOUR WAY ♥ HOW NICE ♥ HOW SMART ♥ GOOD JOB ♥ THAT’S INCREDIBLE ♥ HOT DOG ♥ DYNAMITE ♥ YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL ♥ YOU’RE UNIQUE ♥ NOTHING CAN STOP YOU NOW ♥ GOOD FOR YOU ♥ I LIKE YOU ♥ YOU’RE A WINNER ♥ REMARKABLE JOB ♥ BEAUTIFUL WORK ♥ SPECTACULAR ♥ YOU’RE SPECTACULAR ♥ YOU’RE DARLING ♥ YOU’RE PRECIOUS ♥ GREAT DISCOVERY ♥ YOU’VE DISCOVERED THE SECRET ♥ YOU FIGURED IT OUT ♥ FANTASTIC JOB ♥ HIP, HIP HURRAY ♥ MAGNIFICENT ♥ MARVELOUS ♥ TERRIFIC ♥ YOU’RE IMPORTANT ♥PHENOMENAL ♥ YOU’RE SENSATIONAL ♥ SUPER WORK ♥ CREATIVE JOB ♥ SUPER JOB ♥ FANTASTIC JOB ♥ EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE ♥ YOU’RE A REAL TROOPER ♥ YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE ♥ YOU ARE EXCITING ♥ YOU LEARNED IT RIGHT ♥ WHAT AN IMAGINATION ♥ WHAT A GOOD LISTENER ♥ YOU ARE FUN ♥ YOU’RE GROWING UP ♥ YOU TRIED HARD ♥ YOU CARE ♥ BEAUTIFUL HUG ♥ A BIG KISS ♥ I REALLY LOVE YOU! ♥ SHARING ♥ OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE ♥ YOU’RE A GOOD FRIEND ♥I TRUST YOU ♥ YOU’RE IMPORTANT ♥ YOU MEAN A LOT TO ME ♥

See?  Positive strokes are positively easy!  How many more can you add to the list?  I have a list that stops at 121, but that’s only because that’s where the bottom of the page is.  You just know there are more ways to say something good!

Say these for your children, for each other, for teachers, neighbors, friends.  Say them to yourself, for good-to-yourself sake, already.

There’s no day like today to start another really great habit!

  1. It’s great fun to set yourself an objective of catching people doing good things and complimenting them on them.

    They’ll be even better at doing good things after getting that compliment, and the ripple effect can spread out to fill the world
