It all started last fall…Judah was attending a tumbling class and he had done a somersault, jumped up from the mat, looked at his dad on the sidelines and gave him a huge thumbs up. So, ever since then, it has been a means of encouragement around our house. When the kids are trying to show me something that they’re doing, I can show my approval by giving a thumbs up.
About a month ago, during our homeschool lessons, I gave Hosanna a thumbs up regarding what she was working on. She gave me one in return and took it a step further.
These are just a few ways we demonstrate encouragement at our house. We all need it and it’s especially important to give kids a thumbs up to reinforce their positive behavior.
Give someone a thumbs up today…add a high five thumb or a hug thumb if you’re so inclined!
