They need to be able to do tasks with other children to be able to develop essential life skills like leading, listening to instructions, coordination, problem-solving, critical thinking, and more.

Today it is common to find a society with no principles, values, respect, and love for others. That's why it must be mandatory that parents raise children with principles and values based on an education that provides love, care, security, and respect. Doing this will ensure that children grow up in harmony, but much more importantly, that they do so being happy.
Children need the guidance, approval, and attention of their relatives, especially their parents, to establish their character and personality; how they relate to their environment depends on this. In this training process, compliments play a crucial role. Through them, children feel that their good actions are highlighted and valued, strengthening their self-esteem and confidence.
Doubtless, children learn better when treated with compliments, highlighting their good works and not with reproaches, which generates a loss of self-esteem. Although praise indeed has excellent benefits for integral development, not properly giving compliments can also negatively affect children.
Praising children's good actions brings benefits such as feeling loved and valued, since praising them shows that you are aware of their actions, strengthening confidence and creating a clear concept of themselves.
When children have strengthened their self-esteem and are aware of their abilities, they are motivated to discover new learning, meaning that praise also favors learning.
However, you should note that the compliment must be sincere and should be perceived that way. That implies that you shouldn't exaggerate when doing it, and it has to be honest.
It is appropriate for children to see and feel that their effort to achieve their goals is very important and not only the final result. In this way, children will create awareness that their efforts to meet their goals bring benefits.
