just to give some early childhood ed. insight, research has, in fact, established that praise - used indiscriminately and incorrectly - can and will impact children adversely.

i know first-hand. i myself struggle with the ramifications (e.g. chronic insecurity; insatiable need for external affirmation; fear of failure; etc.) of seemingly arbitrary and ineffective use of praise throughout my childhood and adolescence.

the subject needs to be qualified in stating that most parents have nothing but good intentions, raising their children the best they can- the best they know how. it's unfortunate in the case of praise, however, that parental intent doesn't correlate positively to outcome. it's why i'm a huge proponent of children's advocacy and parent education.

it also should be noted that doing away with praise in the rearing of children is not the answer. afterall, if you look at many eastern cultures, they've essentially done away with the notion of praising children, fearful that it invariably leads to arrogance and egocentricity. out-and-out ommission of praise can be equally detrimental to children's future well-being.

the answer ultimately lies in balance and the redefining of praise. parents' and caregivers' best bet is to utilize the technique of encouragment of children's efforts and the teaching of self-evaluation and self-acceptance.

sorry for sounding extraordinarily verbose. i'm just overly passionate about issues relating to children and families.

and finally

if you find yourself praising a lot of shit, maybe take a step back and ask yourself "was that really necessary? did i really need to congratulate steve for losing 2 pounds since christmas?"

stop wasting your time.
:smackshead: this is what I've been doing wrong, god I am such an idiot...

sorry steve
