As a parent, you must be careful what you say to your children. Little words of encouragement from you can go a long way.
It is important to make your children understand what to focus on and what not to focus on in life. You should always remind your kids of these three important things:
1. How much you love them
Telling your kids how much you love them goes a long way. Some parents believe they do not need to say this to their kids, especially after showering them with gifts.
Don't forget that the little things you tell children go a long way and could either have a positive effect or a negative effect on their lives. Telling them how much you love and care for them will make them feel loved and special.
2. You believe in them
Don't just show it, say it to them. Remind your kids how much you believe in them. Help them boost their self-confidence and self-esteem. Whenever they achieve something, tell them you are proud of them. This will encourage them to do better. And if they perform below expectation, let them know there is room for improvement.
3. Do not give up
Some parents make their children feel bad whenever they fail. This is wrong. You should let your children know that no one is perfect, but with lots of practice, they can be perfect. Help them understand that failure does not mean they are useless.
