I think most of us know by now that praise works better than punishment to get stuff done.
If you are a parent trying to get your kids through learning at home, then often any ideas that you may have about encouraging learning, can go out of the window in favour of desperately trying to get something done. This is ok. You are human. And this video is not about how you talk to your kids.
This video is about how you talk to yourself.
Because you also are likely to respond better to praise that punishment / judgement. And yet, I can almost guarantee your internal voice tells you off most of the time.
1. Be aware of your internal voice
2. Each time it tells you off, flip it around to give yourself praise for something
