    Totally agree with your premise, Abby. Being extremely intoleraant of a child's failures and mistakes creates risk aversive children who are afraid to try anything lest they "miss the mark" or "fail".

    Kathleen, great answer and totally agree with your premise. If a child is criticized, h/she feels like a nonperson and eventually develops low self-confidence. Dr. Wayne Dyer advises parents to NEVER criticize your child when correcting him/her.
