Now that school is back in session and we are all so busy, I have to be extra intentional with praising our kids and just having a conversation with them in general. It’s so easy to go back and forth between all of our activities, then back home for dinner and bed time and realize that I haven’t said one positive thing to them all day long.
Kids thrive on those little positive comments, just like we do as adults. Think about a time you were at work or volunteering for something at your kids’ school and someone gave you a compliment on a job well done. It makes you feel amazing and also makes you want to continue to do a good job.
I am very excited to tell you about a website called Positively Proud.
On the site, you’ll find a collection of products, books and other ideas all geared towards supporting the children in our lives in absolute best way possible. I also love the fact that this is mom-created by Stacey Alexander. (Keep reading for a 15% off discount code for our readers!)
I had the chance to check out a range of their products and let me tell you, I’m a fan! I even handed a few of the products over to my son’s 2nd grade teacher because I knew they were something she could also use for her students. Here are a few of the available products:
