Talk about failing

November 21, 2017

“One thing we do know in recent years, there’s too much blaming of parents,” Heyman says. “Temperament is extremely important and it’s biologically based, and to deny that causes all kinds of problems.” 

 

The excerpt above is taken from a great article found here, published on the ww2.kqed.org site. The article is talking about how parents need to talk and help process their child's failures. As this powerfully equips the child to advance and develop a healthy appreciation of failure, as being a catalyst for success.

 

In early years teaching and child care, how do we do this? Easy, perhaps we need to stop dishing out so many compliments and incentives and rather use children's short comings as talking points to encourage personal growth as well as social growth.
