How Not to Talk to Your Kids

I linked this in a previous post but didn't emphasize it. I think this is an interesting article. It's kinda long but there's some fascinating stuff in "How Not to Talk to Your Kids".

so, how have you changed the way you give feedback to your own kids?

its' been about a week or two since i read the article so after you asked i didn't re-read it. i just thought about the overall impression and what i'm left with is...
i need to do better at praising my kids in their effort, and in their journeying through something rather than just praising them for the outcome. i need to put the focus on the work they did rather than just the end product.

thanks for asking.
