Sense of accomplishment-Woodmam
How does a sense of accomplishment develop?
A sense of accomplishment usually comes from overcoming difficulties and adversities (50% probability) and receiving recognition and feedback after repeated successes, therefore, in an educational sense, positive evaluation is the only way to help children achieve a sense of accomplishment.
Positive evaluation includes the following elements.
(1) Timely and accurate feedback, and heartfelt appreciation of every little progress of the child
Parents need to be mindful and pay attention to every progress their children make in the learning process, motivating small progress and celebrating big progress. Good educators are always sensitive to every change in their children and show it in time, either with a look, a word of praise, a note of praise, etc.
If this habit does not exist, then efforts should be made to form it. Most of the reasons why children have problems in learning are because we do not have a good eye for detection.
It is important to emphasize that we are against the use of material rewards because it is not necessarily related to the sense of achievement and even tends to divert and weaken the child's accumulation and perception of achievement.
(2) Scientifically using other people's children as comparisons
We often use comparisons to motivate our children, such as, "Look who got 100 points, you only got 80 points, you're so stupid, you're no good." Or, "They are smart, they must have high IQ, and you, resign yourself to your fate, you are born dumber than others," etc.
It's normal to compare, but negative comparisons will undermine your child's self-esteem. Self-esteem is the most valuable thing for children, and without it, there can be no sense of accomplishment. So the comparison must master the proportion, the proportion is to encourage, not to denigrate or vent, for example, you can compare like this: "Look, he did a good job, you can also try to do this, maybe you do better."
(3) Focus on the process, downplay the results, and try to reduce negative pressure for children
Process evaluation is an important principle of quality education. Focusing on the momentary score without considering the whole process can easily drive children into a psychological dead end. Smart parents always value the process over the results.
