Learning from Mistakes Builds Confidence

Learning from your own mistakes takes courage and confidence. It’s hard for children K-12 to face their mistakes head-on because making a mistake is often associated with a personal sense of failure

Many of the world’s “greats” knew a thing or two about the value mistakes. Take Albert Einstein for instance; he said, “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” One of the important tasks of childhood is to try new things, and discover one’s own strengths. Yet making mistakes can shake a young person’s confidence and stop them from trying.

Even a small mistake can leave your child feeling embarrassed and ashamed. Learning how to own up to an error, and make a decision to change reflects maturity and growth. Kids and teens can learn about wise mistakes, how to deal with imperfection, and handle embarrassment. Acquiring these skills can boost self-confidence, which helps them to achieve their personal best.

The Charge Up Your Confidence Tool Kit for Kids™ teaches these very important life skills.
