Now that we know failure is a springboard to success, we, as parents, have to know our teen’s thoughts on what failure is.
Ask your teenager to define failure. What areas in their life do they feel they are failing? It could be school, relationships, athletics, or any number of things. Just remember that these perceived failures are a big deal to them. We can’t minimize it without minimizing them as individuals.
When your teen fails, which they will, sit down with them and ask them how you can help them try again and succeed. But mostly, let them know you love them unconditionally!
Walking this journey with you,
