Can you be too nice? The August 2013 issue of ChildMagazine reckons you can. If we defie nice as being what you do to make others happy with you on a continuing basis, potentially putting your own needs last, the result may be that you essentially devalue yourself as a person.
And as a child gets older, that 'niceness' can be seen as try-hard and weak willed. And the sense of exclusion this engendered then leads to the child trying even harder to please, resulting in further exclusion.
