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.
