  • Probably way more often than I should! My little ones, all the time. My older ones (9, 11, and 13) I try to compliment on other attributes (generosity, kindness, perseverance, etc.) at least as often as I comment on their appearance.

  • i tell them every day that they are handsome or pretty, or cute if they do something cute. i think it's good for them to feel good about how they look. i don't dwell on it or talk about it 24/7, but i make it a point to tell them they look handsome or pretty especially if they did something to spiff themselves up (like comb their hair, wear a new outfit, etc.)

  • All the time. Either "You're cute" ...."Do you know you're handsome?"...."Where did you get all that cuteness from?"
