, (PressExposure) July 27, 2006 -- Edmonds, WA - PARENTS: Listen to yourself. Do your WORDS BUILD your children UP or do they TEAR them DOWN? If affirming statements donât come naturally to you, hereâs a fun and easy way to train your tongue from Jean Tracy, "Granny Jean." When it comes to affirmations, Granny Jean says, "Nothing is better than honesty."
Affirmations need to touch your child's heart. "Fill them with meaning and be specific," advises Granny, a former teacher and family counselor. Using the example, "I'm glad when you try to solve problems becauseâ¦" is much better than saying, 'That was good,'" states, Granny. "'Because' is the magic word when you follow it with specific examples. Being specific delights and motivates your child."
