It depends on how you will say it, to whom you will say it and when you will say it... these are some factors that should be answered before giving a praise. It should be done with good motives and not only to make the other person feel good about what he/she has done. Praise should help someone to become a better person, with higher self-esteem and confidence.

Praising others is not at all bad thing. It is bad only if you are doing it to flater the other person. Otherwise it is good virtue that we can praise others for their better qualities. I think that by praising others we are showing our respect for that sort of quality of that person. I think by praising others we can get many things done by them in much easier manner. Even a little child needs some sort of praising for doing better things. I think that praising proves to be a great motivator.

Praising is a good habit. This means we are acknowledging the fact that one person has done something really well or has a positive trait. This reinforces positive behavior. However, we should always be sincere once we praise people. This is not something that we need to do without any sincerity. This may also give wrong signals to everyone if we do not clarify why we are praising them. We should be specific. I would like to praise you for posting a good topic. Great day!

I think praising is good when it is appropriate. If another person deserves a praise, I think that would be nice in order to help that person increase his/her self-esteem. Also, knowing that one does what is right and assured by others would make one do better. I think praising would be bad if it is a sarcastic one. A genuine praise is good.

It depends on how you put your praise. If you are a leader and your subordinate gave you an outstanding output for a work, that is really encouraging and and reinforcing more good output ahead. However, if you are doing for it for ingratiation or a sort of flattery, then that would not be good. I think if good things in the world will be deprived of the its goodness, that's the time it will turn bad. If you intend to hide your curse out of those flattery, that will make it a bad habit.
