Positive Reinforcement​

I’ve spent weeks studying my notecards

for my early childhood education exams

and several had to do with positive reinforcement.

They say that when you praise a child,

there should be 10 positive comments

for every single negative.

That is how you build their self-esteem.

What a nice theory.

What the notecard failed to mention

was what age that should stop,

because personally I think never,

but I think my mother gave up on that

around the time I turned 8 weeks old.

I’m doing good in life

even if I am overweight.

Where’s my positvity?

Where is my self-esteem?
