Honestly, as I write, I have not finished reading this. But this is a GREAT blog and MUST read for all parents and people who have children in their lives to guide.
I have written and talked a lot about fialure not actually being “The End” and actually not really “failing” so much as succeding in a different way than our mind expected. How we deal with that experience daily is the key to The Best Life.
A person has to try to do things and then NOT accomplish the feat so they can KNOW what NOT to do and WHERE to improve.
EXTREMELY timely advice to get kids involved in life again!

Heinlein Quote

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life.  And that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan

The pupil who is never required to do what he cannot do, never does what he can do. – John Stuart Mill

I want my kids to fail.  That probably isn’t at the top of your list for your kids, but it should be.  Failure is one of the most important experiences they will ever have.  The road to success is paved with failure because failure teaches us how to succeed.
