New Beginnings Journal for Kids

A fun guide to help kids set intentions (during any new beginning) and learn to appreciate their mistakes, rather than feel ashamed or upset when they mess up. 

Learning from mistakes and errors is an essential part of childhood development. We want children to understand there is a positive side to getting things wrong.

Every expert will tell you that learning is enriched through error. And in fact, research backs this up.

A professor at Stanford—Carol Dweck—studies this. She followed hundreds of 5th grade students in NYC. One group was praised for their intelligence and the other for their effort. When all the students were challenged with an incredibly difficult 8th grade test, the students praised for effort worked very hard, even though they made a lot of errors. The students praised for intelligence became discouraged and saw their mistakes as a sign of failure.
