We All Make Mistakes


Two ways to explain “mess ups” to your children:
  1. Explain to your children that they can always be stars – even if they make mistakes.  Stars in the sky can seem to be gone in the daytime or on a cloudy night, but they are just hidden. On the next clear night, the stars come out again and again. The star within people is like that, too.
  1. Explain that they have stars within them. Those stars can also be hidden when they mess up and do something wrong.  But, their stars within them can shine again because they can always do better and be better from one day to the next.

“There are no mistakes, only lessons.”

(Chinese Proverb)
(See Your Child is a Star! for more information about mistakes.)
