We parents have a superpower: with our words we create and model mental mechanisms, positive and negative ones, that our children will carry with them forever.⁣
The ongoing "good job" that we tell our children 1. Make them dependent on our opinion; 2. Prevent them from experiencing emotions just the way THEY feel them; 3. Push them to do things to receive the emotional prize and not for the sake of doing them.⁣
And the best part is, children don’t need to hear “”good job when they do something good, satisfaction comes from within, from being able to achieve something; “good job” doesn’t add anything.⁣
What do I say if I don't say "good job”? You can find some ideas in the full article on the blog.⁣
