The Importance of Failing Well: The Art of Learning for Parents


Publisher: IBSOURCE ISBN-13: 9780473288587


In both Eastern and Western cultures today the pressure to succeed is being felt most acutely by teenagers. The drive to live up to the expectations of parents, teachers and a socially connected world causes teenagers today to suffer from unprecedented levels of depression and anxiety disorders - most especially in affluent, well-educated families with children attending schools focused on high academic achievement. 

In order to strengthen and preserve their mental health and achieve their goals, teenagers more than ever before, need to learn how to be resilient – how to overcome adversity, how to learn from their mistakes and how to fail well
The concept of failing well was first applied in an educational or psychological context by Lance King in 2007 and since then he has spread the idea to more than 200,000 students, teachers and parents in 33 countries. Failing well, in many different languages, has become standard terminology in many of the best schools in the world and is helping students in those schools to achieve top academic results, preserve mental health and develop resilience. 

In this insightful and provocative book, Lance King, global educator and father of four, gives parents practical ideas for helping children to develop resilience and succeed at school - combining mental health with academic success.
