Praising children – Why and How

You would agree with me that most of our parents praise us occasionally. On the other hand, others say that constant praise will spoil us. That’s Africa for you! But does praising a child have any benefits or is it detrimental? What do you think about this?

It is true that praising a child for his works, skills, or achievements make that child improve and gives him/her encouragement to do more, but we ought to be extremely careful not to praise too much. Excessive or too much praise makes some children overconfident—and overconfidence is not good for any human.  

Parents should not praise their children only over the outcome of their work; instead, they ought to praise their children based on their efforts and skills—and this must be sincere and genuine. For example, is your child an artist? Why don’t you praise him for that skill and encourage him to work harder on it instead of only praising him whenever he wins a competition at school? When you do this, your child will see you as a real person who has his best interest at heart.  

So, praising children helps them do more. However, don’t praise them in an insincere, genuine manner. 

As parents, don’t only praise your children, you also have to consider the type of praise you give them. Will this praise help build confidence in him while, at the same time, teach him the importance of effort and hard work? Or will the praise I offer make him feel insecure? These are some of the most important questions you ought to ask yourself. 

It is wrong to always focus on the negative sides of your children. Rather, try as much as you can to focus on all the wonderful and positive things they have been able to do.  

Praise your children sincerely, parents!

If we raise our children in the way of the LORD, we avoid regrets in future.
