Protecting children from failure is bad for them.

18 July 2018

Parents and teachers often try to protect children from the consequences of failure, but in doing so, the children don't learn resilience. The old adage is true. We learn from our mistakes.

Here are a few suggested approaches

1. Don't protect children from low-risk natural consequences.

2. Use the experience of failure as a chance to grow and learn.

3. Remind the child that negative emotions come with failure and that's ok.

4. Give praise for effort but don't give inflated, untrue praise.
