Positive Reinforcement

This is geared to children but is true of any relationship. Focus on the good and encourage more of it:

If a child failed his maths test and comes home with 50% correct, the parent should first look at the 5 out of 10 questions the child succeeded in answering correctly. “These 5 answers are fantastic – and I see the questions were tough” is the reaction of a wise parent. By delving on the child’s good points, the child will feel much better about himself. The parent will likely see steadily improved grades on future tests, since he is actively building his child than breaking him.
