I often underestimate the power of positive affirmation with children. I got a brilliant reminder from a letter in the mail today. It reminded me of why saying positive words to children matters always. Especially in cards. The letter was from my son’s school teacher. It stated that he followed directions. He was also kind and had a sweet demeanor. The best part that made him so happy: ‘he does his very best in every thing he does.’ I read this out loud during dinner. He has been carrying the card all around, even took it to bed. Thank you for this reminder. I am keeping here too so I never forget to tell him how kind he is, how much I love his sweet demeanor and of course how proud I am for when he does his very best.
