10 Things You Should Never Say to Your Kids

The Top Ten

1 "Great Job"

That’s a good thing - DrayTopTens

I remember really hating when people said this if I thought I had done a bad job. If I thought I deserved it, I was fine with it. - Yoshilord

Why would I never say this to kids? It's best to praise them and make them feel they're doing great, so they can keep it up. - TheRegular1227

Not always. Sometimes, such as when you write, practice helps, but not with some things. - Cyri

This is something that has always been said and practise makes perfect, great job, you're okay, hurry up say to anyone.
