Where there is risk and challenge there will be mistakes and failure. What is important is what happens when we make mistakes.
Successful people accept that failure and mistakes will happen along the way and they do not let the fear of failure hold them back from trying new things or taking a risk.
It is important for our students to build resilience so that they do not give up the as soon as things get difficult.
Of course we value success, and we love to see our students achieving in all areas, but as teachers and parents we should be praising the effort and the resilience that led to the outcome, rather than praising just the results.
