How To Praise Your Bilingual Child
Wow! It's February already?
My family and I just returned home from a two-week vacation in Texas. And we got back just in time for our 4-H club's annual Valentine's Day party! I have several Valentine's posts scheduled for the next few days, including adorable bilingual Valentine cards that I created for my daughter.
But first, I wanted to be sure and share with you all this lovely printable that mi amiga, Unknown Mami, has created and is now offering as a free download on her site. It is a small poster with "101 Ways to Praise a Bilingual Child." I thought it especially appropriate to share this week with Valentine's Day coming up. What better way to show your child how much you love him or her than by building them up and helping them to find the confidence that comes with a parent's love?
How often do we remember to praise our children for their hard work and good deeds? I am guilty of not doing it enough. And I am thankful for Unknown Mami for creating this beautiful piece and offering it to all of us. It now sits in a frame on my mantel in our school room, a lovely reminder to tell my children how much I appreciate them.
If you go over and download it, please leave her a comment and tell her MommyMaestra sent you. ;)
Con mucho cariño...
