comment Coaxing a child to perform her best
@Joe, she's still too young to worry about social or long-term effects. I'm fairly confident she'll be fine reading in public eventually. I'm also fairly confident her reading skills are moving in the right direction. Part of my reason is simple curiosity, and part making sure we're giving her reading material that is neither condescending nor too challenging.

comment Coaxing a child to perform her best
Her vocabulary and comprehension are pretty good too, we just don't know how good, because she resists anything that feels like a test. She's somewhat reserved in public, but is quite talkative at home.

comment Coaxing a child to perform her best
We don't praise much at all about her reading anymore, because of her response to it, although she readily accepts praise in other areas. We're aware of the studies about praising effort versus intelligence and try to follow that.
