Children should also be taught how to fail, as it is normal to get things wrong and this will ready them for when this happens in an educational environment.
If your child asks you a question, Ms Kendall advises answering with one to give them something to think about.
Replies such as “what do you think about that?” and “what do we need to answer this question?” will be of more benefit to them.
Another key thing to practice is telling your child when you are unaware of something they ask – this will help them learn that sometimes we have to do research to find out what we ned to know.
Swapping knowledge with your child is also key, as your shared experiences and information are equally valid and interesting to the both go you.
