Encouragement Does More Than Correction




As a parent, I am often faced with my boys who might not listen or situations in which they can act inappropriately . So, it got me thinking about whether always correcting them was better than just letting certain things go. Could simply encouraging them to do better next time be more productive  than always  highlighting the mistake? Does this hold true in an office setting as well?

What is the definition of encouragement?

Something that makes someone more determined, hopeful, or confident

How do you pronounce it?

en·cour·age·ment /ɪnˈkɚrɪʤmənt/

Can you answer the following questions in conversation with your trainer or a friend ?

  • What do you do to encourage yourself when going through hard times? Does it work?
  • Who do you talk to for encouragement and inspiration?
  • Which of your family members encourage you most? How?
  • What are some saying in your country that bring encouragement?
  • What’s the most encouraging book you’ve ever read?
  • Which is better a word of encouragement or a letter of encouragement? Why?
  • Should people just accept whatever comes there way?
  • What are some ways you feel you can make a difference in this world.
  • What song encourages you most?
  • What person has inspired you the most? How?
  • How can you make yourself believe more in yourself?

Can you write out the answer to the first and last question?

It might be difficult to give this answer. Think about it for a while. Write as many possible options as possible & remember them when you need a little pat on the back!

I Hope My Son Is Happy

My son, Giako, came home this week singing “Because I’m happy, clap la-la-la-la….” .

He explained that his second grade class was learning the hook (i.e. chorus) to Pharrel William’s song this week.

I bumped into his English teacher, Matilde, on thursday and we agreed that I would create this video clip for the class to help them memorize the song.

Try singing along with your kids.

I hope it makes you Happy:-)
