Make time to celebrate achievements

Make time to celebrate achievements. Last night, Rio and many of the athletes who participated in this year’s Olympics took time to celebrate an exciting two weeks of competition. Sure, not every Olympian was able to celebrate a medal, but each was able to celebrate the journey to get there, and be proud of the tireless commitment and work it took to compete at a world-class level. So, too, should you and your child take time to recognize and celebrate a job well-done. We often tend to focus on the negative, especially when it comes to school. It’s important to acknowledge successes, however small, to remind your child that while you’re not always celebrating a gold medal, little victories matter and lead to even greater success.
