Compliment a Parent on How Well-Behaved Their Child Is
Parenthood can be overwhelming, and sometimes the kind words of a stranger is all it takes to turn a mother or father’s day around.
When you’re in public and you notice a child doing something good, it means the world to a parent to hear that. Whether you’re at a restaurant or the grocery store, make a parent proud with a simple compliment.
And encourage them when they're obviously having a bad time. Eg; Temper tantrums in a shop.

As a waiter, I always complement a parent who has a child with a book in front of them rather than a cell phone which sadly, isn't very often.

I try to do this especially when children are in church or the theater or somewhere where it's hard to sit still and be quiet.

This is not only good for the parents it's good for the kids!

I work in daycare so I've had the opportunity to do this! Parents are always very appreciative to hear this
