50: When Your Child Makes a Mistake

Video taken from the channel: Jackie Flynn

Here are some important ways to respond the next time your child has a setback: Watch your child’s reaction. Take your cue from your child’s reaction to the loss. Is she happy because she tried his best?

Is she angry at Focus on the future. Instead of talking about the loss, focus on how to do. How to Respond when Your Child Makes a Mistake 1. Consider whether the mistake was an accident. How often do you get frustrated when your child stains her nice shirt 2. Thank your child. When your child admits to making a mistake, thank her for telling you.

Yup, before you even 3. Embrace. When Your Kid Makes a Mistake You can’t protect your child from messing up, but you can help it hurt a little less. Seven to 9-year-old kids have a more difficult time shrugging off mistakes.

Use. Another example of a mistake your child is likely to make would be when they are older and driving a car. Obviously, you will teach them to pull over after an accident, ask if everyone is ok, exchange information, and so on. But when they back into a pole in the school parking lot, how will you handle that?

When children are allowed to make mistakes and learn from their experience, the cognitions (aka “thoughts”) that are embedded in their self-perception are I am capable, I am competent, I can do difficult things, It’s okay to try, as well as several other helpful ways to feel. The only people that make mistakes are the ones that don’t try. Whenever your child makes a mistake, show your support with both your words and your nonverbal reactions. The quickest way our kids will learn to erase the idea that mistakes are fatal is feeling our accepting response to their errors.

4. When you get angry with your child for his mistake – your child begins to feel threatened by your anger. Your anger makes him forget what he did to make you angry. Your anger makes him feel like he is the victim. He forgets his mistake that caused your anger.

As a victim – all he then focuses on is – how to escape from your anger. Since he has forgotten. As your children build mistake tolerance and tenacity through setbacks, they will recognize mistakes as opportunities that increase understanding or skills rather than indications of.

Letting your child make mistakes doesn’t just strengthen their resolve. It also builds your confidence. Through reassuring them that they can handle life, you begin to see it’s true – they can. ‘You want to instil in a child the sense that whatever life throws at them, they can handle it,’ says Cale.

When Your Child Makes a Bad Choice October 21, 2015. Karen Ehman “For it is written: ‘As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to Me, and every tongue will give praise to God.’ So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.” Romans 14:11-12 (HCSB) It was a gray and gloomy day when my ordinary routine of laundry and dishes was.

In some cases, the child simply proceeds with the activity and does not notice the mistake.

  • I can own up to my mistakes but the biggest hurdle for me is apologizing since I’m not a well spoken person, I either stay quite and let the flames die down and “disappear” for a while or just apologize
    via. texting/messaging, or when someone expects an answer from me I stutter most of the time.

  • I’ve been working at my dads business ever since I was 14 and I really want to move up in the company but I feel like my past mistakes are holding me back at a position I don’t want to be in. And I find it hard to accept my failure cause I fear that’s all I’ll be remembered by. And it haunts me every day

  • Amazing,i agree with her especially when she said don’t blame anyone,be responsable: when you could be accountable of your success,achievements,goals,dreams you should also be responsable of your failure.

  • When you dont want to think about other people’s thoughts about you, when you dont want to see other people’s unrealistic lifestyle, essentially focusing on yourself mostly, then there is little in social media, and platforms like facebook and instagram. Besides some of those company data mine you! (Im using youtube just so learn thses stuff otherwise i wouldnt bother to be data minded by google)


    I am registered as clinically insane in the arkham asylum prisoner log

  • The most influential people would add to the value of the world by showcasing the realness in their life journey and emotions, too.

  • Hym the most powerful and successful people from what I observe never own up to their mistakes and never admit or take responsibility for them

  • And how would this video come across in a money less world of staggering production and everyone equal as survivalist and having all our needs met for cooperation to the whole…this video is for today only…I strive for a new day

  • Being shameful is what i have been through so far. I have failed to graduate from university. My parents always told me how depressed they looked at me and how shameful they felt. I don’t know if I could get through this tough.

  • My mistakes affects my family and some people too in my life and it hurts, I can’t move on I’m so ashamed, I just to want to hide forever or disappear!!! I’m so so ashamed!!! If it only affected me it was alright but I pulled people into my mistakes and I hate it I hate myself for that!!!

  • so i made i mistake that mistake was my mom was getting KFC and about a couple of hours she showed up and i had the drinks and going up the stairs in the house so i fell.And i went in the house and i told my mom about what happen. And she got really made and yell at me and said ” i gave yall a chance and i i tryed to be nice but you ** that up ” so of course i felt useless about what happen so i said i made a mistake. So she said i don’t wanna talk about i anymore that’s why i’m watching this video cause i failed and made a mistake. There’s more to the story but i don’t wanna talk about it.

  • When crippled with the thought of the mistake and of failure, remember that this is one incident out of over thousands of daily correct decisions and achievement’s you make daily.

  • Mistake is natural.

    Regret is foolish.

    The greatest glory of life is not to never have fallen down

    but to always get up every time we fall.

    To overcome difficulties is to experience the full delight of existence.

    A man’s true delight is to do the things he was made for.

  • Fuck human children. Pets are better than useless human kids. I’d rather be a parent to my dog and cat than to care for a needy, screamjng, annoying, expensive human. Animals are better than humans children

  • This is a very valuable message for each individual, however, at a societal level, we should also remember that the right systems and processes play an important role in helping individuals succeed.

  • I am also a failure. I wish I can share my words and stories with millions of those who are feeling the same and hopefully we can get each other out of that hole.

  • In my country failing means YOU ARE DEAD. the BRUTA FIGURA(I think that is what she said) the losing face thing is really really a brutal reality in my country. Specially so if you succeed before and suddenly failed. It is seen upon you going astray and like you are nothing anymore. It is hard to move forward with such a mindset in my country.

  • I keep on making mistakes and my dad hates me more and more each time. It’s like I can’t help it. I just continuously make mistakes. And he is so mean about it.

    I hate myself and I wish I’d die so people can finally be happy
