Talk to your child about what they can do if they have a friend who is the one freaking out because they made a bad throw in the baseball game or have forgotten the words to a project they were suppose to recite in front of the class. At times, kids huddle around the kid who is upset and that makes it even worse. Instead, let them know that it is fine and just act normally. Though they could also think of a small gesture that might make their friend happy. They might say something like, “I will save you a seat at lunch.” or “See you on the bus later today.” If a child knows that their friend does not see a mistake as a big deal, they are more likely to give themselves a break too.

You can not protect your child from messing up, but you can help it to hurt a little less.

The bases were loaded with 2 outs in the 7th inning (last inning) of a Babe Ruth Little League championship game when Chris came up to bat for his team, which by the way was down by 2 runs. Chris hit a fly ball that was caught and that ended the game. He was trying to hold back the tears, he thought he had let everyone down. My heart ached for him. Seven- to 10year-olds are less able to shrug off mistakes than they were when they were younger. Learn how to help your child realize that a missed shot or a forgotten line is not the end of the world.

Try to put off the pep talk

Resist the urge to swoop in with, “You gave it your best shot.” Let your child do the talking. Nothing that you say in that moment is going to make it OK. Allow him to get his feelings out. It will help him to learn from the situation. If he is not talking at all, you can give him a hug and a nudge by asking him to tell you what he is thinking. After he has calmed down, you can tell him about a similar mistake you or one of his role models has made.

mistakes

This type of sucking is completely normal for babies and young children. It provides security. For young babies, it is a way to make contact with and learn about the world. In fact, babies begin to suck on their fingers or thumbs even before they are born.
