How often do you celebrate your daughter?
My daughter is really amazing. Just in the last year, she rocked out school, played basketball on a winning team, and did great in her first year of volleyball.
Not only that, but she’s a Girl Scout, active in our church, and helps me out with her little brother all the time.
I am intentional about telling her how much I appreciate her and how fantastic she’s doing.
She definitely appreciates being acknowledged, but there are times when I want to do more than just recognize that she is a good kid. I want to celebrate her in a way that puts a spotlight on everything that she accomplishes in a way that makes her feel special.
So, how do you celebrate your daughter?
Outside of the normal, “Great job. Let’s go get ice cream!” Not that ice cream is bad, but here are a few ideas that can help your daughter feel extra-special—because she is.
Let her know what the world thinks about her
You’re a mom so I know you are constantly sharing your daughter’s accomplishments online. Start showing her all of the affirmative comments you receive about how awesome she is!
Brag to her VIP contacts
Your daughter do something that stands out? Send an email to her teacher, your pastor at church, or her coach.
You’re naturally going to brag to her family members and friends, but when you make the effort to show her that what she did should be acknowledged by all of the important folks in her life, she’ll really shine.
Give her a big reward
Ice cream is good, but a big accomplishments deserve a big reward. Plan a celebration trip or party to show your girl how much you appreciate her excellence.
Become her publicist
Did you know that newspapers and local news shows are always looking for feel good stories to fill in between the hard news? Send an email to the editor or producer to let them know what your girl accomplished.
Let the world see how fantastic your daughter is!
