Kids fail less when they know that failure is part of learning! Read on for details.

According to a study, kids perform better in school when they know that failure — and trying again — is all part of the learning process.

Researchers have found that all it takes to get kids to perform better on tests is a simple pep talk that explains that it’s normal to fail and then try again.

The pep talk ends up boosting kids’ memory and their ability to process information.

Experts say that the fear of failing not only hampers performance, but it can also lead students to avoid difficulty and therefore the opportunitites to develop new skills.
