Encourage Character Development

Another Parenting Tip from The National Center for Biblical Parenting…
Immediate praise for work well done is very motivating. It's important to catch your children doing something right. Not only do you want to affirm behavior but also you want to encourage the character development that you observe. Use words like, "You're becoming very cooperative." Or,  "I like the way you're learning to be kind." Praise goes a long way to build good habits.

Look for ways to praise your children whenever possible. Don't just focus on a child's weaknesses. Tell kids what you like about the character they're demonstrating through those positive behaviors.

This idea is not just for young children who seem to eat up our praise. Teens need praise too. Often the faults of older children are glaringly obvious and quite scary for us as parents, but determine to catch your teens or young adults doing something right and praise their character and maturity. You'll be surprised at the results.
