Why Let Your Child Fail?

Is it ever OK to let your child fail? It can be difficult to see your child try something and fail. But sometimes FAIL stands for “First Attempt At Learning.” In this episode, hosts Amanda Morin and Bob Cunningham speak with a mom, Meg, about how her son declined his IEP, allowing him to step back and learn from his failures. Meg also talks about the difference between being accountable for your mistakes and being at fault for them. Understood is dedicated to shaping a world where millions of people who learn and think differently can thrive at home, at school, and at work. Learn more about “In It” at u.org/podcast.
