Small Things # 7 – Positive Reinforcement

I was pleasantly surprised to notice this paper in my son’s folder. See how the class teacher (Mrs Abrahamson, First Grade) has circled the best ‘S’ in the handwriting page instead of pointing out at not so good ones. What a small yet enormously effective way to reaffirm positive behavior! And what we do is the other way round – find faults and punish. Simply loved this and learnt from it!

  1. Shivangi it made me remember my primary school days. Mine was the worst handwriting.
    But it improved so much, during college on Annual Days all certificates they recommended me to write.
    It feels good now.
    Punishment is worth…. the pleasure. Hahaha
