99 Compliments for Kids

compliments for kids

My husband is involved with the All Pro Dad’s Day Chapter at our kids’ school. One of the things they do that I love is at every meeting the dads get a chance to tell everyone around them why they are proud of their children. My husband has told me on more than one occasion that this is his favorite part because our kids light up when he says why he is proud of each of them.

Kids love to be complimented—especially by their parents. The things you say to your kids carry a lot of weight. So print out these 99 compliments for kids, tape them somewhere only you can see them, and share a few with your children every day.
