approaching mistakes…

How we, as parents, approach our children’s mistakes can have a profound effect on how they approach mistakes for the rest of their lives. Attribute negative interpretations to their behaviors, and our children learn that their mistakes make them bad. Approach mistakes from a positive position, and they learn that mistakes are merely learning experiences.

  1. Another wonderful bit of wisdom… I appreciate so much these small entries. They are like a spring board of parenting from which to start from in examining my own parenting practices.

    I often take the few minutes on the computer that I have to look at your blog and when you have an entry like this- short and simple, but so rich- I am able to take the thought with me throughout my day and use it to improve my mothering way.

    Thank you!
