I don't know Kelly personally, but follow her on Facebook and via her blog, so I was really very pleased to learn that she had written some of it down in a concise book! I downloaded Encouraging Words for Kids immediately and highlighted almost all of it! It is all such great, useful information. It is clear to read, easy to understand. Without reservation the value of the book is a lot more than what you'll pay for it.

I consult with parents to help get them on track with their children from newborn to early teens, and I will use this book frequently as a go to resource for parents looking for connecting more or reconnecting with their kids. Also for those parents looking to encourage their kids to be self motivated, use their initiative and be proud of their own achievements.

I have already asked Kelly to write another such book on another topic which I would equally use as a resource. I love this one and I know if she writes another it will be just as valuable to myself and the parents I recommend it to.

This is a brilliant book, and an inspirational read written by an inspirational lady.

A quick easy read which I thoroughly enjoyed. I particularly like the list of encouraging phrases which i will be making a copy of to stick on doors to remind me. Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redefined the interaction between my daughter and me 27 Nov. 2012
By Dan Frasier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read "Encouraging Words for Kids" the first day it was released on the recommendation of a trusted friend. Immediately it's message hit home for me. I don't have a problem child and there isn't anything particularly wrong with my relationship with my daughter, but I did feel that I had become a praise machine and that the praise I was giving out was having a smaller and smaller effect. Worse, I had noticed that at times, school in particular, my daughter had become almost unnaturally attached to praise. She would sacrifice her recesses to stay in and help the teacher, or try to "act like a grown up" (a phrase, sadly, she had distilled from my praising how grown up she was acting). She made no bones about telling me that she was doing these things for the praise from people. I could feel we were into unhealthy territory and was already beginning to worry about how this outlook she was developing would manifest itself in approval seeking later in life. And then I read this book. Kelly distills to it's essence the problems that can arrise from too much or inappropriate praise of children. She lays out the way it is perceived by the child in a way that makes me wonder if she can read kids minds. It's so easy to understand and gentle in it's advice. Like talking to a good friend. She then lays out both a general idea for a better way to encourage your children and specific examples to translate that notion into practice. I have found NO trouble in changing the phraseology I use when talking to my daughter but the results in the way it has changed HER outlook have been incredible. Already she has nearly stopped acting in order to get praise and has begun creating values for herself and acting on those values. Importantly, I am now able to help define those values WITH her... so that getting the person in front of you to praise you is becoming less important and acting within her own value system is becoming more so. I was so astounded with how well this worked, that I took the book for a friend of mine that is a child psychiatrist. She is a believer in both the concept and the practice that Kelly so accessibly lays out in the book. In her words, parents interested in going from good parents to excellent parents should interact with their kids in this way. Thanks Kelly...this book is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short subtle mighty 26 Sept. 2015
By ROSE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Take 30 - 45 minutes and read this book. You won't regret it. Most parents want their child to grow up with self-acceptance and confidence so they believe praising them will do it. Bartlett explains to cultivate this you need to encourage your child to see their worth whether they succeed OR fail. Encouraging your child goes beyond superficial praise. This means recognizing qualities like hard work, persistence, kindness, and cooperation that shows the goodness in them regardless of the outcome. This book doesn't just offer a philosophy it gives concrete examples that anyone can understand and use whether your child is 2 or 42.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical and concise 12 Mar. 2015
By D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While there are many other wonderful books that have a similar message, I thought this one was fantastic for the fact that it is so concise. It's a great reference book to refer back to the many practical lists of examples of what to say instead of "great job!". It very much reinforced the ideas behind why we must and how we can encourage rather than offer empty praise.

This book helped me to see how encouraging your child instead of just giving them praise is entirely more meaningful. I always knew that but it spells it out and does it very simply.
