2. Makes Changes

No one likes to fail and when it happens to your child, she probably feels the whole gamut of emotions, from disappointment, anger, guilt and even sadness. If you try to shield her from feelings these things, she isn’t going to feel bad enough to make necessary changes.

Perhaps your child fails tryouts for choir and you tell her the director is an idiot or doesn’t know anything. Blocking her from feeling the emotions that go with failure isn’t a very good way to get her to practice or make other changes to ensure she gets a spot next time. So, as hard as it is, let her feel those emotions so she is spurred to fix things on her own.
