Instead of amplifying another’s faults (and pointing them out)… tell them what it is they are doing orderly and well that is what you admire about them.

***This is especially important regarding the way parents interact with their children.  Far too many parents say things like: “Joe, you didn’t clean your room; stop being such a slob and clean your room.”  Well, in psychology, there is a thing called “The Labeling Theory”; that principle maintains that people (especially “youth”) may incorporate the labels placed on them and (subsequently) use those labels as “self images.”  So, if parents tend to call their child a “slob” enough times… there is a good chance that such labeling may contribute to the child becoming more lazy and indifferent… due to an internal mechanism of being (and fulfilling) what was implanted as a self-image.  Please… refrain from the negative labels… and whenever they do the smallest good, tell them how caring, helpful, and considerate they are!***

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
