Encouraging Words For Kids

October 24, 2012 at 6:34 am (Attachment Parenting, General, Positive Discipline)

Encourage your kids, inspire their confidence!

This new ebook gives parents over 150 examples of phrases of encouragement that draw forth a child’s drive to work hard and do what’s right without being told. It is a guide that helps parents find the language of creating positive communication with their kids.

Available for:

iPad (iBooks)

Kindle (and Kindle app)


“With lots of practical examples and stories, Encouraging Words for Kids is extremely helpful in understanding how to encourage kids to develop confidence, motivation and self-discipline. Highly recommended!” ~Amy McCready, founder of Positive Parenting Solutions

“If you’ve heard that praise isn’t the best way to develop your child’s inner compass but you’re not sure what to say instead, Kelly Bartlett has written the book for you. Her new ebook, Encouraging Words for Kids, clears up any confusion about the difference between praise and encouragement so you understand why “Good Job!” and similar comments actually undermine your child’s confidence. Her examples of parent-child interactions illustrate beautifully why children respond so differently when you evaluate them with approval than when you empower them with acceptance. Best of all, the book has a number of actual phrase lists that you can keep handy to help you express your encouragement, appreciation, and support for your child. A positive, encouraging, and practical book for parents!” ~Dr. Laura Markham, founder of Aha! Parenting 

“This is the guide that every parent needs. Kelly Bartlett helps parents know not just what to do, but what to say. Kelly makes unconditional acceptance easy. She understands the importance of trusting children to find their way capably and responsibly and gives practical guidance to parents to help this process along with love and compassion. She teaches parents how to teach their children to love and respect themselves—to grow emotional intelligence.” ~Bonnie Harris, author of  When Your Kids Push Your Buttons and Confident Parents, Remarkable Kids: 8 Principles for Raising Kids You’ll Love to Live With

    Hello Kelly,

    I have not yet had a chance to purchase your e-book (I will be very soon though!); however I am anticipating that it is going to be very interesting and full of excellent ideas if it is anything like your blog! I am just wondering if there is a way to get an actual paper copy of it? I work in a parent resource centre and I think it would be awesome to have in our centre for parents. I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog and articles you email and regularly pass them on to coworkers and friends and my husband. As a parent of a “spirited” 5 year old son and a lively 2.5 year old I am always looking for any sort of ideas and I find your information to fit my personal philosophy. Keep up the good work!

      Hi Roberta, Thank you so much for your support and kind words! I’m glad you find the blog useful, and I know you will enjoy the ebook, too. I’m sorry there is no paper version though! Right now it is only an ebook. If I ever decide to sell printed copies, I will let you know!
