Why it's Important to Keep Celebrating

Finally, your child has mastered that pesky /g/ sound in sentences, or has started using 2-word phrases! Now, onto the next thing… but wait! First, we just want to remind you that you and your little one have achieved something great. Stop and take a moment to really let that sink in. Sometimes it’s hard to appreciate our successes when it feels as though the goal posts are constantly shifting, but it’s important to celebrate the small wins on the way to big goals and here’s why.

It creates joy and increases motivation When we celebrate, it releases happy chemicals in our brain, and in noticing this feeling, we realise that we want more. This can increase our motivation and build continuing momentum towards those bigger goals, which can sometimes feel so far away. So, as you turn yet another corner on your Speech Pathology journey, take a moment to stop and smell the roses you and your little one have grown along the way.

It builds up our ‘burn-out buffer’ Taking a pause to notice our successes helps to put us in a more positive mindset and better equips us for dealing with setbacks. We’ve all had those days where it feels as though absolutely everything that could go wrong, does. You have been running around non-stop all day, and before you know it, it’s finally time to put the kids to bed and you just couldn’t find time to practise those speech sounds. Take a moment instead to remember your efforts so far, and how amazing it felt to hear your little one say “I love you” with their /l/ sound for the first time. This can make it much

less frustrating when these days do pop up, and helps us wake up feeling fresh and ready to try again tomorrow.

Your child is working hard to achieve their goals, and you are doing so much to support them in doing this. Tackling all of the numerous baby steps is the only way to reach the top of the mountain at the very end, so each and every one should be celebrated just as much as the summit.
