    "failure"?  Were they unforgiving or were they encouraging?   

    I was raised to avoid failure & to see it as a NEGATIVE thing.

    I really can't remember that far back. In my adult life they had a good ear. I think that was important to me. They did not judge me, they encouraged me to keep on keeping on.

    Well when I was in grade school, I was struggling.  My mom didn't see me as a failure but wanted to get to the root cause of my poor grades.  Did find out that I am learning disabled-I have dyslexia.  But she was encouraged by the teachers that I would catch up-I would have to put in more extra work.  And I did that.  But if I was a different skin color-I think the teachers might have had a different attitude about me.
