Working in the public school system has allowed me to see first hand how many of our black children dont know how to handle constructive critisicm. They tend to take it as a direct threat to their character, when in fact it is often times necessary in order to learn and build your chracter through their mistakes. I also know many adults that dont favor well with any kind of critisicm, and I think that it is because as children they may have not recieved it at all. As parents, should we or shold we not give our children constructive critisicm and back it up with positive reinforcement? My opinion is that a chid needs an equal balance of both as children and teens if they should become prodictive workers, husband/wife as well as productive parents. What are your opinions?
