How to Make a Kid-Sized Communication Sandwich

I recently read multiple articles which argue that praising kids too much may lead to narcissism.

Fortunately, I don’t think my kids have to worry about being narcissists. Unfortunately, however, it’s because overpraising them is not my problem.

Nope. Instead, I struggle with praising them as much as I should.

And this is why I’ve started making kid-sized communication sandwiches. I’ve come to realize that just as Ted and I serve each other communication sandwiches in our marriage, we can also serve them to our kids. It offers a great way to remember to feed our kids praise and affirm what they are doing well, as we also correct as needed.

This week I’m over at For the Family sharing how you can make kid-sized communication sandwiches too. You can read my article here.
