Praise can discourage cooperative learning. “No, I don’t want to build a castle with her, she doesn’t build them right.” “Mine’s the best idea; we have to do it my way.” Children who are praise-dependent are less likely to be willing to share their ideas, or their Legos, with others, lest the others take them and create something more praiseworthy.
