This lesson as I personally see it,
Everybody fails, its a fact of life. What we do with this experience defines our future and or growth.
Fact 1. Everybody fails.
Fact 2. Nobody enjoys it.
Fact 3. Anybody can fail forward
We as adult leaders need to let kids know its an essential process to success. it may be the most important thing you ever teach your children.
Think of all the great people in history who were great failures.

Just to mention a few people that we think of great successes, and the list is endless.
The one thing they all have in common is the tenacity to never, ever, Quit.
This is one of the most critical things we can teach our children.
Please, never, ever, allow yourself to condemn them for trying and failing. Alway, be supportive and encouraging when they fail at anything. tell them they will do it better next time and encourage that next time to happen right away!
Teach them that every failure is a learning experience and that they should try, fail, evaluate and then repeat the process until they get it. Another thing that is important to remember is that winners never QUIT and that Quitters never win.
We have all seen a stranger berating their child in public. unfortunately, they never had anyone teach them that failure is not an option when it comes to giving their child a sense of self-worth, hope, and security.
My hope is that you will never be that person and I pray for these unfortunate little children who eventually grow with this kind of parent. Is it any wonder why we see so much anger, hatred, and violence in our schools today?
