Is it okay to fail? Of course it is, and we should teach this to our kids.
We need to teach our kids it is normal and ok to fail. Even let them know we fail at times too!
From Failure to Success
When your child fails, they need encouragement. Not the fluffy, false kind of encouragement filled with flattery that tells your child they deserve the best of everything just because they are your child. Depending on the reason they failed in the first place, that’s not true encouragement, and your child knows that.
Every failure, when handled correctly, can be a step toward success. If at first you don’t succeed… We need to let our kids know it is okay to fail and bring it to their attention when they do. It’s a simple matter of learning from their failures, because until they truly know where they truly are, they can’t truly get to where they truly want to be.
