One of the biggest and first rules you learn in montessori is letting go of the phrase “good job”. If you listen people are CONSTANTLY telling their child good job for things they are supposed to do. Telling a child good job constantly takes away their accomplishment from them and gives it to you. They will be constantly doing whatever just to get that good job from you and eventually not feeling very accomplished when they do anything, even if it’s something amazing because they have gotten so accustomed to hearing good job. Now you might be thinking that’s a bit harsh how do I congratulate my child? Instead of telling your child good job try “how does that make you feel that you did (whatever)”. If they are showing you art make an observation instead of exclaiming how much you love it such as: “I noticed you used a lot of blue!”. The idea is to get them to think about their own doings so that they do art, work, WHATEVER, for themselves and not for the gratification of adults. This is one of the hardest things to get everyone on board with because it has come so common in our society. You remember the Chris rock stand up when he talks about niggas always wanting a cookie for doing something they are supposed to do? Just apply that same logic. We tend to praise children for EVERYTHING and anything. Things that they are supposed to do. They are supposed to use the toilet, learn to walk, etc. I am also not suggesting you be cold and act as if nothing is good enough. Please still be happy and joyful, just get your child thinking about how they feel, and their own emotions instead of them worrying if you think it’s a “good job”.
I count my blessings that I get to run a blog with my best friend and teammate. He is my photographer, finance manager, editor, sounding board. This blog could not have grown from being a hobby to a business without him. Today on the blog I am sharing how my husband work together to grow the blog, and tips to help you! (link in bio) One thing I love most is working with brands I stand by and that actually help our lives become easier or solve a problem. When I had the opportunity to team up with @Gillette , and ask Rick if the new @Gillette SkinGuard would be beneficial, he barely let me get the sentence out before saying yes! Rick was excited to try out a product that actually protects the skin from razor bumps and irritation. I am so grateful to have this business with my partner, and try products we love! Get yours at @Walmart.com ! #Sponsored#SkinGuard
