Description

“Christ died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.” 1 Thessalonians 5:10-11

St Paul instructs us to encourage each other in faith, to build each other up. People flourish when they are affirmed and appreciated for who they are and what they do. Children respond especially well to affirmation and it is a proven method for encouraging desirable behaviour.

Experts recommend that incentives be focussed on rewarding effort rather than ability. Why?

Students can’t help whether they have a natural ability in a particular subject or task. When parents and teachers reward them for results based on ability, it reinforces a dependency on that ability. Thus students who have been affirmed for their ability have been shown to have less resilience and motivation in the face of a difficult task. These students give up more easily as they assume that a difficult problem is beyond their ability.

On the other hand, students affirmed for their effort persist for longer at the problem as they believe that it simply requires more work.
