Pizza and kids

Hello there

My name is Karyn, I'm Irish and I live in Ireland, mum to 4. Its nice to "meet" you all.
What a brilliant site. Your group sounds really interesting and I just wanted to share my recipe with you, its for kids but adults can't say no either ;) My kids favorite food is pizza, this recipe is away of getting all those pizza flavours with chicken which is a good source of protein. They really love it and I don't feel guilty that their eating pizza again. I included the link. I hope you like it, looking forward to pinching and sharing recipes with you all mama's italian chicken bake

10 Things to Speak Over Your Children

"I believe in you."
"It’s a blessing to be your mom/dad (grandma, aunt)."
"I love you." Then be specific: "I love your smile (energy, caring heart, etc.)."
"I noticed ... (you got your homework done, you have a new friend). That’s what I call responsibility (kindness, other character quality)."
"Keep up the good work. You’re making progress!"
"If more kids were like you, this world would be a better place."
"There is a bright future ahead for you."
"Thanks for what you did (helping, doing chores, doing homework, etc.)."
"If all the 8-year-old girls (use child’s age) were lined up from all over the world and I could only pick one, I’d pick you."
"I admire or am proud of you for (name a specific quality or trait)."

10 Negative Phrases Not to Say Because They Tear Kids Down:

"You’re no good; you’ll never amount to anything."
"If you don’t stop doing that, I’m going to leave you here (or go home without you)."
"Why can’t you be more like your brother/sister?"
"I can’t stand you."
"You are so much trouble."
"I can’t wait until you’re grown up and out of here."
"Don’t you ever listen? Where are your brains?"
"What’s wrong with you?"
"You are stupid."
"You’re giving me a headache (or stressing me out)."
