Try, Try Again
Practice makes perfect. Being persistent is one of the best lessons you can teach your children. Persistence can be taught by allowing children to play an instrument or a team sport. Kids need to understand that skills requiring practice are worth acquiring. Short-term payoffs won't sustain a person in the long run. Encourage your child to regularly practice something daily. Don't shy away from skills that challenge them, such as reading or painting. Establish a one month rile. Every new activity should be practiced for at least a month. The life lesson of persistence will help kids endure challenges until they achieve success.
