The power of praise...

I read an interesting article recently which although doesn't apply to Mabel right this minute, will be useful to consider as she grows up. Basically it was describing the influence we have as parents on learning, describing how the choice of words you use to motivate can have a massive impact;
"we should praise effort, never talent; that we should teach kids to see challenges as learning opportunities rather than threats; and that we should emphasise how abilities can be transformed"

It isn't a long one and worth a glance over!
