Let Kids Feel the Pain of Failure

For any parent with school-going children, the one thing on their mind is: exams. New evidence suggests that letting children focus on the pain of failure encourages them to do better next time. US-licensed marriage and family therapist Dr Johnben Loy is here to help you understand whether you should reassure your child after failure or let them feel bad about it.
