Cheers you should know

Many, many years ago, I read an article on encouraging your children and the power of positive words. At the end of the article was a list of cheers that could be said to your children to encourage them and build them up. I cut the cheers out and backed them with construction paper and taped them to the side of the refrigerator. I remember some days with all the activity and business of life, it was easy to forget to cheerleader. Having the list on the refrigerator was a visual reminder to cheer on! Even today, with three grown boys, it is a good thing to be their cheerleader and to speak positive words. Below is the list of the cheers. Maybe you would like to put these on your refrigerator as a reminder to use your words in a positive way. So how 'bout it..........can I hear a CHEER? :)

Good Job!

I'm glad you're my son/daughter

I like you!

That was really great!

I love the way you fixed your hair.

You played that song beautifully.

You are a great friend!

You'll make a wonderful wife/husband someday.

Thanks for cleaning your room.

You're so strong.

I trust you.

You are God's special gift to me.

You light up my day.

My favorite part of my day is picking you up from school.

I missed having you around today.

You're such a good helper.

I'm proud of you.

Way to go!

I knew you could do it!

God made a masterpiece when He made you.

You are such a treasure.

You are one of God's greatest gifts to me.

I'm behind you.

I'm praying for you!

That was so responsible.

You're a joy.
