Parenting Tip: – Encourage Your Child To Accept Criticism Positively

Encourage your child to accept Criticism positively:-

“At every step, the child should be allowed to meet the real experience of life; the throne should never be plucked from his roses”- Ellen Key.

In class, mathematics teacher wrote a table of 8 on the board:-
8*1=8
8*2=16
8*3=24
8*4=32
8*5=40
8*6=48
8*7=56
8*8=64
8*9=72
8*10=79
After she finished she found students laughing at her. She inquired the reason to which everyone collectively said that she wrote the table wrong. Its 8*10=80, not 79.
Listening to this the teacher smiled and said I have purposely written the last line wrong to explain to you an important lesson in life. She explained, “I have written nine things right but sorry to say no one valued it. On the contrary, I made only one mistake and you all started laughing. That’s life! She continued, “These are few advice for everyone”-
a. Mistakes are different from failures. Failures never accept mistakes, whereas, winners accept their mistakes as a path towards excellence.
b. Train them the difference between constructive and destructive criticism.
