No one likes to fail. But failure offers an opportunity for teens. The way your teens learn to handle failure can make them more resilient. Let your teens see you sometimes fail because it’s a great reminder that failing at a task or job doesn’t mean you’ve failed as a person. So, the next time your teen auditions for a part in the school play that they don’t get, there’s no drama. Instead, they bounce back by signing up to work on the school paper. They’ve learned that life goes on even though they took a risk and failed.
