Positive reinforcement is a something we all need to keep in mind when raising children. It’s not like I NEED another reason to throw a party, my bestie wanted to GIVE me another reason to throw a party. You see, she does things like this on purpose because she knows. She knows I am obsessed when it comes to parties. She is not-so-secretly trying to ensure we end up playing shuffle board together in the old lady blogger retirement home!
Let’s keep the Disney Dream Party week moving along with her positive reinforcement princess party!
This week I set out to create a Disney Princess #DreamParty celebration to reward Kayla and couldn’t believe how easy it was to put together. Just so you know, I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client. #DreamParty #cbias everything you see here is my personal and picky opinion.
Positive reinforcement. I think it’s safe to say that it works in so many applications in life starting with small children and going all the way up the corporate ladder. You work hard, you accomplish things, you are recognized. In my eyes how much of a fuss is made about what you’ve accomplished isn’t as important as the fact that someone acknowledges it. Kids need to hear “I’m so proud of you” followed by why and it’s a surefire way to see the good behavior replicated.
When it comes to parties and celebrations I like to keep my decor relatively simple and do a mix of homemade and store bought. Nothing is ever planned far in advance and I craft as ideas come to me. So I was super excited when I was cruising the aisles of Walmart and saw that Hallmark has really stepped up their game and created this whole new Dream Party line of party supplies which go far beyond the thin poly goody bags of my childhood.
The best part of this little celebration was that Kayla knew it was just for her and because she’d done something that made us so proud. As much as I think she may be on a mission to drive me crazy some days, there is no doubt she also seeks the approval and attention of her parents. The second best part was I only went to one store to get everything including the decorations, the cake, the little toys and the extra items I used to customize the decor. One stop. That’s about 4 less than past birthday parties. I could get used to this…
