Awarding Children at Home

Having confidence and a high self-esteem will benefit a child when he or she is an adult. One way to help your kid or kids achieve these two characteristics is by awarding children at home. 

Have you noticed that kids tend to feel good when they know that their effort is recognized? Try telling them over and over that they they are naughty, and that's what the kid will manifest.  

Give children recognition awards in every area of their lives to encourage them to be better, and more importantly to make them feel good about themselves. By teaching children to pitch in around the house, it helps them learn responsibility and organizational skills. Parents can recognize the good work that their children have done around the house by giving them awards like what we do at the end of the year. 

At 12 years old, twins Julia and Rafael find it funny to receive recognition certificate, but they surely like the P100 that comes with it, lol!

You can award your child for having a clean bedroom and performing other household chores, or by choosing the award that best suit your kids.

Why do we give them money as part of the award? Well, we are also teaching them how to handle their money wisely.

Julia is Most Thoughtful for always making a card for me and her Dad of every occasions.

El received an Early to Bed Award for sleeping the earliest.
Juancho received the Most Cheerful, dapat pa bang i-explain?

El's got the Cleanest Room Award because he keeps it neat which makes it easier for me to clean.

Juancho, The Most Surprising Award, 
because he brings home medals from school from winning quiz bee even if he does not study at home.

Julia as The Early Riser because she has the discipline to wake up at 5:30am during school days.

Start recognizing your child's worth...

yet we forget that he is someone today."
