Everyone loves a good compliment, and when it comes to boosting your child’s self-esteem, positive words can go a long, long way.

 

However, we don’t mean a compliment directed at their appearance – we don’t want kids thinking that they need to look a certain way in order to be worthy of an encouraging comment.

 

Instead, focus on the positive things in life like an acknowledgement that they are doing well in school or are being particularly kind – kids love when Mum tells them they are doing a good job.

 

1. You were so kind to your friend today

 

2. You’re very funny

 

3. I am very lucky to be your mummy

 

4. You were very helpful with the shopping today

 

5. Your writing has improved so much

 

6. You were very generous sharing your sweets

 

7. You were very brave when you climbed to the top of the slide

 

8. You figured out how to do that maths problem very quickly

 

9. Your drawing is very creative

 

10. You make me so happy

 

11. You have some really good ideas

 

12. You’re very good at reading

 

13. That dance move that you did was awesome

 

14. You were very polite when you asked for that sweet

 

15. You have the happiest laugh

 

16. You are such a great student at school

 

17. You were very helpful to your little sister earlier

 

18. Once you put your mind to something there is not stopping you
