Bad criticism can be very dangerous for children because it destroys interest and gives rise to fears.
- Don’t become personal. If you tell your kid that he is stupid, bad and other unpleasant things all the time, he will not have any desire to improve anything. It is better to praise his effort and result of his work. For example, it is good to say, “I saw how long you prepared for the test. I am proud of you!”
- Don’t make small failures into a tragedy. If a kid has forgotten to do an easy task you have given him, just say that you are disappointed and hope that he will not do it again. In this way you will teach him to differentiate between a serious problem and small trouble.
- Teach and help. Kids may not do something at the first attempt, sometimes they are just afraid to do something. Instead of saying, “You are old enough, you will do it”, teach them, help them overcome their fear. Help and encouragement are extremely important for kids.
