How over praising and exaggerating your praise damages more than builds

It's a myth that to boost self esteem we have to praise our kids.

And because many parents are so afraid of hurting their children's feelings they exaggerate their praise and even lie about it.

This lecture opens up the challenges of using praise to boost self esteem, and shows you the skills to use that enable you to be honest and caring, even when you don't think something is worthy of 'praise'.

Use this skill to reinforce the respectful behaviour you are looking for, instead of falling into the trap of accusing and blaming.
