I’m always interested in the psychology of awarding praise.

Too much, and it can create a bloated ego. Too little, and you risk damaging someone’s self-esteem.

Parents, especially, have a fine line to walk with such tender egos at stake. It’s a hard-knock life out there, you say, so at least at home let children think they walk on water.
