100 Ways To Praise A Child

I received this great list "100 Ways To Praise A Child" from my son's developmental therapist a few years ago. I'm not sure who created it. Some of the praises are a bit outdated (in wording) but the sentiment remains the same - praise your child and let them know how special they are to you. This is a concept that is important for all children but can be especially helpful for a preemie. Preemies are asked to do a lot of things that can be difficult and challenging for them and making sure they know that you think they are doing a great job can go a long way towards success. So yeah for praise!!
