Eastfirst, you should check out "The Power of Our Words." It's available at the Stenhouse website and right now you can read the entire book online!! For a fast answer to your question about what to say instead, go to this link and scroll down to page 10: http://www.stenhouse.com/pdfs/pow_appa.pdf . Praise that is not manipulative or phony is all about telling the child what you notice and letting him/her devise how he/she feels about their work. I highly recommend this read!

Off to read the first two chapter of TCTC. I'll be back shortly to comment I'm sure.
