Am I a praise junkie?

I came across this article about praising children via the e-learningpost. I’m glad I took the time to read it as not only did it present studies with young children and their approach to learning depending on the type of praise they received but there were also some studies conducted with students at college and high school.

On a personal level it’s given me some food for thought about how I parise my own child (though at only 19 months I think I have some time to adapt my approach to praise before I/they too become a praise junkie) but the studies certainly give me some food for thought about how to approach feedback to students.
