At some point in their education journeys, our children will experience failure. It might be when they sit an exam, a classroom test, enter a competition at school or lose in sport. For some children, it can be a disappointing and painful experience for them. As parents, it can be tough working out how to best to react in these scenarios.
This talk draws together the most current research evidence from the fields of education and psychology on failure. Those who attend will be introduced to the concept of “failing up” where failure is viewed as a necessary and important learning tool for young people. They will understand that failure exists as an important mechanism for encouraging personal growth and nurturing academic success. This talk is suitable for parents with children of all ages.
