It is a privilege to welcome this week’s guest to the show where we’ll be discussing why allowing your kids to fail is one of the most important things you can do as a parent. Failure is a great lesson in critical thinking, understanding the connection between actions and consequences, and it equips your child with the necessary skills they need to function in the real world.
Kristin Venberg is a Learning Resource Coordinator at an incredible school and has a Master’s of Education in Educational Leadership. In working with Kristin, I realized there’s an opportunity to bring you a robust conversation around failures, and I’m sharing this with you today.
Tune in this week and discover why failure is a great opportunity for your children to grow and how to use mistakes and failure to teach your children to fix situations. We share some tips you can use to help your children take responsibility for their actions and solve their problems, and why, as parents, we need to teach our children that it is OK to fail.
