Much of our childhood memories are of small and important moments, that we have remembered not because of what actually happened but because of how they made us feel. Some of them made us angry, sad or lonely, while others aroused hope, laughter, and optimism. As adults, we often forget the weight words hold for children.
Words of encouragement and compliments have a lasting effect on how our children see the world, and some of the simplest and shortest expressions can make them feel better and help them succeed during difficult times. Whether you want to tell them how well they did in the soccer game or encourage them to overcome failures, these are the 40 compliments you should not forget to tell them. For us, these are simple words, but for kids, they’ll be remembered always.

Remember: Like everything else in life, you have to know when and how to say these sentences and compliments, but remember to say them and don't assume that your children know how we feel about them. The greatest advantage of using these compliments is that they will help your children and grandchildren understand exactly what you think and feel, improve your relationship with them, and help them cope with any challenges they face.
