As we all know people respond better to being rewarded or congratulated than to constantly being criticized. The same goes for children of all ages 0+. So when your child has done something whether it’s helping you to clean up, cook, or whatever the case may be. Even if they’re actually making a bigger mess try rewarding your child for the simple fact that their heart is in the right place. Doing that encourages them to push further in life. You’ll be surprised how that little encouragement will go a long ways!
