Honor all the incredible kids in your life on Absolutely Incredible Kids Day, a holiday celebrated every year on the third Thursday in March.
The day inspires and encourages kids to do amazing things by letting them know how incredible they are.
Let Them Know
Created by Camp Fire, a multicultural and non-sectarian youth development organization, the unofficial holiday encourages parents and guardians to acknowledge and reward their children’s’ achievements.
Researchers agree that encouragement from parents and family members can raise a young person’s self-esteem and can help them become more responsible. Psychologists also warn that parents should not praise traits that the child cannot change. Instead parents should reserve praise for efforts in areas that are in the control of the child, such as decision making skills, behavior towards other people and animals, responsibility and attitude.
How to Celebrate?
- Camp Fire encourages people to send letters of encouragement to kids to let them know how important they are.
- Inspire the children in your life by telling them that they are awesome and that they can do incredible things.
