"There are high spots in all of our lives and most of them have come about through encouragement from someone else." George M. Adams

"I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism." Charles Schwarb

John Maxwell writes in Encouragement Changes Everything, of a study by HH Goddard done on children and their energy levels.
"He hooked children up to a device called an ergograph to see how they would respond to the words of others. He found that when tired children were given a word of praise or commendation, the ergograph showed they experienced an immediate surge in energy. But when children were critized or discouraged, the device showed their energy took a sudden nosedive. Never underestimate the power of an encouraging word."

Encourage your child with your words today. The results are amazing!
