Too true, Stephanie. Kids need the recognition! We sometimes compliment in a group, and end up making people feel embarrassed. Something I was thinking about!
Dianna Mendez says
Yes. If the person feels embarrassed about being complimented, it is best not to say anything too!
Daisy Mariposa says
Definitely the social situation must be borne in mind! Thanks for sharing!
Audrey Hunt says
So true! We have to be careful when others look on as they might feel uncomfortable. Thanks for sharing!

It does depend on the situation, Linda! Thanks for sharing!
I'd wholeheartedly agree with this one. It really depends on the nature of the person. And the persons surrounding him...if those tend to be a little bit uncomfortable at being complimented, I'd not compliment in public. Thanks for the insights!
Paul Richard Kuehn says
As a fellow teacher I so agree, Paul. We have to give the kids compliments publicly for the good things they do. If we have to let them down, it's never good to do it in front of their friends. True!
Joshua Nyamache says
True.It boosts their ego, though we have to be mindful that they might feel embarrassed too!
