The Way We Praise Matters by Janet Lansbury

This is a good article discussing how parents/guardians can stay ‘real’ with their children and create authentic connections through honest, open, unbiased discussion.

Excerpt: “…being in an authentic relationship with our children from the time they are born is the challenge… What does that look like? What does that feel like? To be honest and authentic with a tiny human being, who maybe isn’t even talking yet, who we obviously want to encourage to be a good person… Mostly we do that by modeling and that goes for authenticity as well. So if we want to raise children who are authentic adults, we have to show them what that looks like by being authentic with them.”
