Positive Praise

​​​Promo Video

Well-documented research from the Boys Town Center for Behavioral Health suggests positive peer reporting helps socially rejected students. Students “tattle” to the teacher about their positive interactions with the ostracized student. This allows the child’s classmates to see his/her good qualities and improves the child’s behavior problems and social standing. The interactions with the child’s peers become more positive.
