I'm assuming the kid is learning by example. A lot of parents and nannies at the playground I frequent with my charges do this exact thing. E.g. "Oh, Johnny, you shared your snack with your sister? I'm sooo proud of you! Good boy." *pat, pat*

The reason I gave an example was NOT because I thought people here wouldn't get it, but instead to show the way that parents often make a big deal about and "over-praise" the simplest things. If they do that for the minor AND major actions of their children, then it's no wonder the kids might copy this approach in hopes of reinforcing the behaviour that they deem desirable shown by the adults around them.
