Grandma decided to let 7 year old Kayla to the job of putting the toys back in the toy box by herself. It was a tough job and Grandma let it be okay if it was not done perfectly. She encouraged Kayla with “You’re doing a great job Kayla”. Kayla said, “Grandma, how did you get these all in here?” Grandma replied, “It sure was tough, keep up the good work!” When she completed the job, Grandma acknowledged her efforts (even though the toy box couldn’t close), “You did a great job on that toy box, Kayla, thank you for you hard work!” Exhausted, Kayla beamed with pride and Grandma felt great at encouraging her granddaughter. Hooray, Grandma!
