Turning Your Child’s Envious Attitude to the Positive Side
The Attitude Detection
When Angel was two or three years old I noticed that she frowned (means she never liked it) whenever I praised somebody else aside from her, even the children performing on tv shows, whew! I knew that it may not come out from envy but maybe plain jealousy knowing her age. I began telling her in a calm manner that she need not feel like that because she, her friend or that girl on tv can ALL BE beautiful, smart or witty at the same time – there is no need to choose or knock the other out. There is no competition at all.
