Let's party!

Sometimes we as parents see positive choices that our children make and don't take the time and energy to communicate our appreciation and/or excitement. Today I was inspired by a lecture by Cecil Burger, a therapist in Akron, Ohio, to celebrate good decisions our children make, positive change in their behavior, accomplishments as a result of hard work or persistence, etc. He suggested we do something to affirm our children's accomplishments - from a complimentary word to throwing a party! My suggestion: acknowledge and affirm anything we want our children to repeat.
