Yes! Yes! Yes!
Share this quote with your teens because it is as raw and true as it gets.
Playing the victim does nothing for them. It impacts their mental health, how they are viewed by others and over time how they view themselves.
Failure sucks! Own it, learn from it and grow from it!
Blaming others for their failure or circumstances only perpetuates this victim mindset and over time can be isolating and depressing.
I know I say this all the time, but it is vital they understand the power of failing and the opportunity in the moment.
When your teen can own their choices, they build confidence, respect from others and a healthy growth mindset.
