Children respond to praise in a dramatically positive way. Praising your child has very beneficial effects on both the parent and child. The application of praise can be routine as well as special. Children will love it, regardless of when you do it. They will become better at listening to you, following instructions and enjoy the process.
Praise should be enthusiastic, expressive of happiness through tone of voice.
It should express the exact thing that the child is bieng praised for.
It should be accompanied by a non-verbal action, such as a hug, pat on the back, a high-five, or other appropriate action.
It should be immediate, at the point where the expected positive behaviour is achieved. It should also accompany incerements in positive behaviour.
