Show#327 Discussing The Differences Between Encouragement and Praise

 

Please join Host Paul Cimins and Co-Host Lynne Glucoft discuss Social Media Question.

The goal of every autism parent is to have their child grow up and be independent and become a functioning member of society.  How do you motivate your child/adult?  Do you use “encouragement” – thanking the child for the work he/she has done or do you use “praise” – giving a child a reward or saying how proud you are of him/her.  What works best for you?  Some parenting experts say that “encouragement” fosters self-reliance and that  “praise” tends to foster dependence on others.  There is a difference.  We would like to discuss this on our next show.  Tell us what you think – call our show directly TOLL FREE at 1-877-HOPE-777 or questions@autismradio.org.  Let us know your thoughts!  We look forward to hearing from you.
