You are not mistaken. I called this episode “Let Your Children Fail”, because that's actually one of the best gifts you can give your children. How so? Well, I don't mean that you should let your children really “fail” all the time, and don't help them. I do mean that you can teach them to appreciate their mistakes and learn from them.
Because if you teach your children that they can either succeed or learn something new (as opposed to fail), you will give them a gift for life.
- When should you and when should you not interfere?
- What's the difference between failing and learning?
- How to help your children fail and not feel bad about themselves?
