Accepting failures and new challenges

“Children deserve teachers who understand their nature and respect the limits of behavior. The best teachers are the ones who are struggling to become more than they are, on any given day, and who demonstrate to their students that this quest to learn and to grow, to accept failure and go on to new challenges, is what life is all about.”

When children see that grown-ups, teachers, parents, or friends, make mistakes and grow from their experiences, it gives them the ability to feel empowered. They know that they can be safe in their risks and try new things. This is what growing is about. Having safe, rich environments for learning is what will help growth to flourish.
