  • High school is a safe time to let children take risk, fail, learn, and grow strength of character - or grit. Protective parents can hurt the child, who may acquire a mentality of entitlement and not the mental muscles to recover from a fall. This Web list is inspired by Jennifer Meer's article "My parents let me fail, which taught me how to live" and Salman Khan's view.

    • Why will Salman Khan not tell his son he's smart?
    • Why did Jennifer Meer's parents let her fail, and how did she benefit?
    • Why should you let your children take risk, fail, and learn the consequence?
    • What if you over-protect?
  Dishes  - Let Them Fail and Grow
  Chops  - Failure Comes from Protection
