Alternatives to empty praise

This morning I was catching up on some readings I've been saving for a while.  I was absolutely THRILLED to read Teacher Tom's blog post that gave clear, specific alternatives of ways we can respond to children rather than the rather instinctive "good job".  

This is KEY for our families, as we have explained that we avoid such praise and ask that our parents do as well.  Please read his post Seven Things To Say Instead of "Good Job!"
