Okay, so my blog isn’t about our children’s education. However, the way I see this post tying into Finding My Worth is that if we start to teach our children young how to handle failure, hurts, negativities in their life and then we teach them to value who they are, what they believe, and to know what they stand for then we are starting them off on the right foundation. This is a great article something I just ran across today and was compelled to share.

Heinlein Quote

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan

The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do. – John Stuart Mill

I want my kids to fail.  That probably isn’t at the top of your list for your kids, but it should be.  Failure is one of the most important experiences they will ever have.  The road to success is paved with failure because failure teaches us how to succeed.

  1. With constant love and nurturing, letting them always know how important they are to us, and how to see and embrace beauty that others can bring to their world…you would set a standard that they can always rise up with self confidence every day. Like the beatles said, “All We Need Is Love”!

  2. Good post. My mom did a great job of letting us fail. She wasn’t the “helicopter” type of mom at all. I am really glad too because even though it took me a bit to figure it out, now I see how failing is not the worst thing, but a part of life. I don;t ind failure as much these days.
