Mistakes help you learn

While it’s understandable to be embarrassed when you make a mistake, we all do it – it’s a natural & expected part of life.

But more than that, mistakes are simply just an indication that you have something new to learn. If you make a mistake, whether it be in the classroom or at work, that simply indicates that you do not yet know how to approach the material or situation. It’s an opportunity, not a problem!

This article talks about the value of using mistakes as part of the learning process. While it’s geared toward educators, the principles apply to everyone and can help in your own adult life as well as when you are guiding your child.
