What is perseverance?
Perseverance is what pushes you to do your best no matter how big or small the challenges are. You can aim to do your best to achieve a goal while moving on to the next.
Why is perseverance important for kids?
It is important because;
There are challenges everywhere no matter we like it or not and we'll need them to toughen up.
Challenges like playing sports or learning how to solve a math problem can also be draining. However, not all challenges are always mentally and physically draining. It could also be emotional like when they've lost a toy or misplaced their favourite video game.
No matter what the challenges are, perseverance is what makes them go through those obstacles in life.
Cheaters and quitters don't always go far in life. In fact, we can also help to avoid our children from cheating, quitting or avoiding a situation!
When we allow our children to fail, it means we're teaching them that it's okay to learn from their mistakes so that they can do better in the future. It might take them days, months or even years but hey, no one was born to be a quitter!
The author, John Quincy Adams once said "Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish."
