It is important to know the differences between praise and encouragement when working with children regardless of your position as a parent or a teacher. Praise and encouragement are two different terms. Here are some notes on praise's differences from encouragement.
  • praise gives personal judgement by an approving adult
  • can discourage belief in oneself
  • "If I'm not good then am I bad?"
  • can focus on end product
  • develops a competitive/superior belief
