Best Answer Nancy McLendon Scott says
Thank you for giving my answer this rating....it is so important that we (teachers, parents, etc) give children positive praise and feedback when they earn it----and give them the help they need in weak areas.
Definitely, we must encourage and appreciate our precious children. They become what we EXPECT of them.

Now, HOW MANY parents do this on a constant basis and yet they wonder why their children are underachievers or nonachievers? Self-fulfilling prophecy in action.
Devika Primić says
Definitely! Negative and/or little reinforcement causes children to be underachievers. They feel that if they receive only negative reinforcement, why bother?
