Study: Parents should praise kids' efforts over results
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- A new study from Stanford University researchers is reinforcing the importance of how parents should praise their babies and toddlers.
Researchers say parents should focus more on the child's efforts and less on the results. They found that how a child is praised influences their motivation later in life and plays a role in the child's beliefs about themselves and their desire to take on challenges five years later.
The research is the first to analyze parent praise in a real-world setting.
