This thought that I have may take some time to discuss. It is more on the Child Like Heart Post, I feel that it is important because of my Criticism Post. An other class work of mine from Ivy Bridge is on praise so that is how i will start my thought on More on a Child Like Heart thought.
Timko Mathiasen Week 4 Unit 4 Discussion 2 Praise
This topic I see also goes back to Amy Chua as well. Have you noticed in all the media giving with Amy Chua, she was cut off, only for the media to exploit their point they wanted to show. Is the media showing her as a monster, never giving love or praise to her children?
I feel sometimes as a country, nation, people we question too many things. Then, were are our values of praise1 that is to say the expression of approval, commendation and merit since in short this is what we are talking about with our children, not praise to a deity or god. It takes practice being a parent and an employer. We are going to make mistakes in missing that mark, or point in time when we should show the proper affection or emotion to a child's works or an associates works. These works can be a art craft, a sport game and a school or work project. Practice in being a parent or employer includes praise, we do not stay the same, we change, yes their are parts of us that is a constant but we change, so must our practice in being a parenting or an employer. Interesting revelation in writing this, the laws says you need a license to practice medicine, I hope one never needs a license to practice being a parent, since it is a life long job, a skill one needs to polish everyday.
The question of praise of out "comes" and "effort" is frivolous, not have scene. Each action is not frivolous, our parenting or our child's actions. To explain further, each decision is made based on a child's' or an associates needs and not to be a stereo typed decision or classified act, since praise is an act toward our children and associates.
In short praise has it spot, but not a classified or a stereo typed act based on a word “outcome” or “effort”. This includes how a person practices being a parents or in how we practice being coworkers or how bosses practices being our employer. I have a badge at work “In training”, someone said I am no longer in training and my reply was I am in training for life, there is always something to improve or new to learn. Praise God, give praise like approval, commendation and merit for effort2. Effort does include achievements, this is the classified “outcome”, effort does include exertion and attempts, this is the classified “effort” of hard work.

My thought is to bring the bible and through the dictionary to bring together what I call the human skill that we as people need clarification on, not from an employers point of view alone or the the bibles point of view alone or anyone persons point of view but every one's. So stay tuned for More on Child Like Heart!
