1977. A big No to bad perfectionism



We parents, teachers, and educators should avoid to form perfectionists and weird persons. 

In other words, let’s not educate them in perfectionism. The kid shouldn’t feel horrified to come to the chalkboard and carry out an exercise, with a terrible sentiment to do it wrong. 

More important than grades (or marks) it is to learn to work with effort and perseverance. 

Don’t exaggerate concerning grades (or marks): it’s paramount to struggle, to work hard, with serenity, to invest all the talents the kid has, and do not exaggerate about grades; these are informative, just that. I don’t mean to be lenient and let the kid to fail, no way. / Photo from: www labortribune com. Girl in library
