Failure

How To Help Children And Youth Deal With Failure

Frequent

Learning is extremely difficult without some failure. Learning involves experimenting. But without help and encouragement, frequent failure eats self-confidence. It negatively affects most children & youth physically, emotionally and socially. It can stop them from trying to succeed. It can start children trying to fail. (At least they are in control of something.) Failure is a poor motivator, success is a much better one. Continued failure can lead to very distorted ideas about self and life. Failure is often due to and complicated by a combination of: exposure to caregivers who have unresolved fears due to their failures; learning disabilities; over-expectations; inappropriate curriculum and learning tasks; nutrition imbalances; exposure to environmental pollutants.
