Appreciating your Children's Good Qualities

This past week was Kayla's 10th birthday and I decided to do something a little different.  Sometimes I like to make homemade cards for special occasions and for this special birthday I put together a pretty card and then one at a time I had everyone write on a separate page in the card "10 Things I Love about Kayla" (without looking at what anyone else wrote).  It was so cool to see the end result, and I know it really made her feel special!!! 

I plan to incorporate this as a new tradition for each kid this year and have already started thinking about things I love about each of them; it also helps us to reinforce complimenting the positive traits and not dwelling on the little things that drive us crazy!!!!

I'm attaching a couple pictures of how Kayla's card turned out...
