Effective Exam Tips for Parents and Learners For Parents - Praise Them - Part 2

Praise can have a powerful effect on children. Acknowledging their efforts and achievements can boost their self-confidence and help motivate them to keep trying hard and looking for effective strategies to overcome their challenges. But some kinds of praise are more helpful than others. In fact, research has shown that some kinds of praise can backfire and make them doubt their abilities.

Two Kinds of Praise
There are two main types of praise: personal praise and effort-based praise. Personal praise highlights your child's natural ability, such as his intelligence or his talent of quick calculations. It's the kind of praise parents often use to express affection. For example, you might say to your child, "You're such a good writer". But be careful with this kind of praise. It could actually undermine your child's confidence.

Personal praise tends to focus on the talents your child was born with. If he believes he arrived prepackaged with certain abilities, he might think he doesn't have to improve in those areas. Sweeping statements about your child's abilities are not as helpful as specific statements about the things he does. It's better to focus on his efforts. read more

Sayyadatina Aishah Radiyallahu Anha says: "Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) once said: 'What a nice curry vinegar is"'.

Commentary: The reason being there is not much trouble in it. Bread can easily be eaten with it. It is always easily available. It also keeps away formalities. Besides one lives in this world for a little while. Vinegar has many benefits in it. It is an antidote for poison. It stops phlegm and gall. It helps digest food, kills the worms of the stomach and creates a good appetite.

Due to its cold effect, it may not be good for some people. But it surely is a good curry which is obtained easily In whatever way it is praised, its full benefits cannot be emphasised. It is stated in a Hadi!h that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam ate it and said: "What a wonderful curry it is". In another Hadith it is stated that Sayyidina Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam made Du'aa for Barakah in it and said: 'It was the curry of the previous Ambiyaa also'.

In one Hadith it is stated, 'The house that has vinegar in it, will not be in need'. i.e. That house will not be in need of curry. These narrations have been mentioned in the Jam'ul Wasaa-il from Ibn Maajah.

Homely Chaos

A woman was at home with her children when the telephone rang. In going to answer it, she tripped on a rug, grabbed for something to hold on to, and seized the telephone table. It fell over with a crash, jarring the receiver off the hook.

As it fell, it hit the family dog, which leaped up, howling and barking. The woman's three-year-old son, startled by this noise, broke into loud screams. The woman mumbled some colorful words. She finally managed to pick up the receiver and lift it to her ear, just in time to hear her husband's voice on the other end say, "Nobody's said hello yet, but I'm positive I have the right number."
