I'm new to Circle of Moms! I don't have many friends with kids and I need a mom's perspective.
My sister and I have daughters that are 2 1/2 months apart and she's telling me that saying "good girl" when my daughter accomplishes a task will hurt her self-esteem later in life. She thinks that saying "good girl" that my daughter's self-esteem is linked to her ability to do things correctly. I should be saying "good job instead. But to me, it seems saying "good job" or "good job" is the same thing? Am I wrong? Thoughts?
