    So true! We have to be careful when others look on as they might feel uncomfortable. Thanks for sharing!

    Yes. If the person feels embarrassed about being complimented, it is best not to say anything too!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    Thanks for the wonderful insight, Lisa! Exactly what I was thinking too. Some people will feel embarrassed because they feel singled out or bad that they got the attention! Others may feel jealous too. So discretion must be exercised. Thank you!

    True.It boosts their ego, though we have to be mindful that they might feel embarrassed too!
