Fernn commented on A toolkit that encourages failure

Hi Ashley!

Thank you for your comment. The toolkit is for both but primarily targetted at the parents as they play a pivotal role in the growing years of the child. They need the guidance and the know-hows to help nurture their children into creative individuals.

The kids on the other hand are experiencing failure through the activities but their parents will be around to help debrief the activity.

Using the 30 circles challenge as an example, at first attempt, children will not be able to complete filling up the 30 circles in 1 minute. The parents need to explain and highlight the intent of the question and ask their child to attempt the activity again. In this case, the child has experienced failure, learnt from the activity and attempted the activity again.
