I was reading this article “How to Give a Good Compliment”. One point really made me think. That is: “It takes confidence and self-esteem to notice good things about others and to make the first caring move to tell them about it”.

Also the comment from Barbara made me smile:

When my now 14-year old daughter was about 4 years old, she would always compliment cashiers. I started to think she only did it to get a “surprise” (usually stickers or a balloon). So, I looked at her one day & asked, “Stryker, are you complimenting people just to get prizes?” She looked up at me and answered seriously, “Yes, but I do always find something I like. When I can’t find anything, I tell them I like their smile because everyone has a pretty smile.”

Wisdom from a little one.
