If you, as a child, teen, or young person "failed", how did your parents approach this
"failure"? Were they unforgiving or were they encouraging?
I was raised to avoid failure & to see it as a NEGATIVE thing.
o yes, I had E and F many times when I was Primary 1-6, mom was not happy but soon got used to the red marks and presumed that I am stupid
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.
