Em­pathise with your child’s distress over the fail­ure rather than sim­ply telling them they will do bet­ter next time

Of­fer sup­port. Help them iden­tify their strengths and weak­nesses, and then ap­ply the same to the sit­u­a­tion they are in

Share your own dif­fi­cul­ties or fail­ures and how you dealt with them.

Let them know that adults can fail too, but the im­por­tant part is get­ting back up

Keep lines of com­mu­ni­ca­tion open. Take the ini­tia­tive if your child is anx­ious about ap­proach­ing you af­ter a fail­ure

Re­ward the mo­ti­va­tion and ef­fort that went into the ac­tiv­ity rather than the end prod­uct

Teach your chil­dren to com­pete with them­selves rather than oth­ers.
