What are you teaching your child about failure?
When children learn the right things about failure – failure and disappointment actually become good for them.
As loving parents we often go to great lengths to protect our children from disappointment and failure in the early years.
We buy them the toy that another kid has.
We fight to protect them from every playground tiff.
We spring into action if they are left out of birthday parties, if they are not included in playground games, if they are left out of school events etc.
We do this without realizing that – introduction to failure early in life is a beautiful thing because – to a small child – no failure is too big.
Also with every failure comes the opportunity to realize – “I am strong enough to handle this”
Start with your toddler. Every time he/she falls repeat the mantra – “What do we do when we fall – we get up and run again”.
It creates a positive state of mind – that ensures easy recovery from failure.
If you have been doing everything you can to save your child from failure - make an effort to change things now.
