Harnessing the Power of Three Little Words!

Harnessing the Power of Three Little Words!

Words of encouragement go a long way and our children long to hear them! If you’re new here, we believe that homeschool requires good curriculum and lots of connection with your child. Children won’t learn from someone who they don’t love and trust or who feel don’t love and trust them.

One way we can show them of our love for them is through verbal praise. Nothing huge. Nothing fancy. It doesn’t have to come wrapped with pretty paper and bows. But telling them how proud you are can go a long way. And it’s simple, three little words: I’m so proud! In fact, most of the praise and love children crave comes packaged in three little words:

Hey there, amazing parents! Let's talk about the incredible power of encouragement – it's like rocket fuel for our kids' hearts and minds! If you're new to this space, we're all about homeschooling with heart – it's not just about the curriculum, it's about building deep connections with our children. Because let's be real, kids learn best from someone they truly love and trust, and who reciprocates that love and trust in return.

Now, here's a little secret weapon in our arsenal of love: verbal praise! It doesn't have to be grand or flashy – just three little words can work wonders: "I'm so proud!" Those simple words have the power to uplift and inspire like nothing else. So, let's sprinkle some praise, shower our kiddos with love, and watch them soar!

And don't worry, if you need a few ideas, we've got you covered:

  • I love you
  • You’re doing great
  • You’re the best
  • You’re my favorite
  • I’m so sorry
  • You got this
  • Yes you can
  • I trust you
  • Glad you’re mine
  • You amaze me
  • You did it
  • I forgive you
  • Let’s go play

Feeling a bit frazzled by the kiddos lately? Here's a little experiment for you: for one whole week, shower them with praise for every little good thing they do. Watch how this simple shift in perspective can work wonders in your relationship with your kids! Then, take a step back and reassess how this newfound focus on the positive has strengthened your bond with them.
