Turn Effort into Experiences and Confidence
Raising children and helping them learn is a process. The best learning, growth and personal development for a child is by allowing them to do things for themselves and learn from their own experiences. The more experience they gain, the more they understand the importance of effort as a component to learning and achieving success.
A child’s abilities and confidence can be developed through the process of trying to find solutions and learning from failures. It’s not easy to allow your children to fail, but it’s crucial that you do. There are benefits to praising children for their efforts and for the way they approach a task rather than praising them for the results they achieve. It’s important to learn how to encourage your child to take the first step by trying new things, take action and focus on effort rather than results.
Action is where your children gain knowledge, experience and build confidence.
