Very true comments. Fearlessness is a hard thing to teach a child.

Heinlein Quote

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan

The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do. – John Stuart Mill

I want my kids to fail.  That probably isn’t at the top of your list for your kids, but it should be.  Failure is one of the most important experiences they will ever have.  The road to success is paved with failure because failure teaches us how to succeed.

  1. I love that my little boy plays computer games for hours on end.
    He’ll never entirely win, but he knows if he tries hard enough, some days may just win a little more than before.
    I really hope he never forgets this.
