Many of us know kids who seemed headed for disaster when they were in school. Maybe they flunked out of classes, or they did drugs, or they were depressed loners. But then something happened later and they blossomed into healthy, happy adults who contributed to society in important ways. Children Who Fail at School But Succeed at Life. How did they accomplish this? Here are some ways educators can support kids so that the children get success.
- Provide opportunities for kids to feel they belong and to contribute in meaningful ways.
- Reward struggle as well as achievement.
- Be a talent scout.
- Change the school social climate.
- Never underestimate the positive impact you can have on a struggling child’s later life course.
