It is my firm belief that praising good behavior gets better results, especially for small children. They are likely to make many mistakes while they are young, so encouraging them to continue to try is necessary. When someone feels like they are being appreciated for the effort they put forth, they are more likely to maintain the same level of effort. On the other hand, if they are being criticized for everything they do, they may give up completely and have the attitude of why bother. When a person needs some help completing a task more efficiently, constructive feedback is a better option than criticism. And, it is always helpful to throw in a few compliments for the things they are doing correctly.
