Here's an interesting dialogue about praise from Fox News:
For my take on the subject, you can read this post. I'm really pleased to say that I don't have ANY praise junkies this year. Current moms and dads, you should pat yourselves on the back (...or is that too much praise?) for using process-based instead of product-based praise at home. For example, "You spent a lot of time on that painting." Instead of, "I think that painting is the most beautiful painting in the whole world!".
