How to Help Kids Cope With Failure
By Isabel Prontes

Children can be very critical of themselves. If a child does not have healthy outlets for dealing with failure it may have severe effects on his or her self esteem. This article focuses on a variety of ways to help a child cope with failure.
1. Step 1
Laugh at yourself when you make a mistake. Children look to adults for cues on how they themselves should behave. Your attitude towards your own mistakes will have a great impact of how a child decides to deal with his or her own frustrations.
2. Step 2
Encourage the child. Praise the child when he or she accomplishes a difficult task. Some children have a tendency to give up in the face of a challenge. Talk of others who have faced challenges and overcome them. i.e. "The Little Engine That Could."
3. Step 3
Tell the child stories about mistakes you yourself have made and how you learned from them. The child will take comfort in the fact that you can relate to his or her plight.
4. Step 4
React calmly when the child makes a mistake. Your attitude towards a mistake has a major impact on the child. Instead of becoming angry, help the child focus on the problem at hand. Seek solutions together. Ask, how can we make this negative into a positive?
5. Step 5
Provide the child a structured environment. Children find comfort in having a routine. Structure assures the child that they have stability and that life goes on even after a failure.
6. Step 6
Be a role model. Practice what you preach. Be a good influence on the child. Provide love, guidance, and support during these important developmental years in the child's life.
A talk about the first ever in Cape Town Biodiversity Expo 2010, It’s in our Nature “Injongo yokonga imvelo!” It’ll be promoting green living etc but most important it will be creating a platform for artist/singers/musicians/lyrist you name it. All they are required to do is create a song or artwork about biodiversity. My guest joined me today to mostly encourage artist from all walks of life to participate and get involved.
Then came double the trouble. I interviewed up and coming hip hopers all the way from Worcester twins, Diablo and Thugwunn (stage names). They spoke about their influences, their name being the ‘Hot Knotts’, their style which they maintain is different to anything ever done. They are currently working on their album of which they are very excited and thrilled about.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.
