Hartman Happenings

Counselor's Corner

As parents, one of the hardest things for us to do is to watch our children make mistakes. We all want the same thing for our children. We want them to be successful in all they do. Realistically, we know they can't do that on their own. Naturally we want to step in and prevent them from making mistakes. I encourage you to fight this urge with all your might! Yes, I said it. Let your child make mistakes. In fact, let them make lots of mistakes!

According to Dr. Shimi Kang here are a few reasons we should let our children make mistakes at a young age:

1. Children will learn that everything in life isn't going to work out for them.

2. It gives them an opportunity to stop and assess what they are doing. They then can decide what changes to make to help them next time.

3. It allows children to experience new things and ultimately grow from these experiences.


Dr. Peggy Drexler, research pyschologist suggests the following for parents:

1. Aim to be reliable, but non-interfering.

2. Involve your child in the decision-making.

3. Let him or her solve her own problems.
