Failure(失败)

              Failure
        Why are so many people afraid of failure? Quite simply because no one tells us how to lead failure experience to growth.We forget that failure is part of life and that every person has the right to fail.
      Most parents work hard at either preventing failure or protecting their children from it. One way is to lower standards. A mother describes her child's hurriedly-made table as "perfect!" even though it couldn't stand on uneven legs. Another way is to shift blame. If John fails the exam, his teacher is unfair or stupid.

    这些避免失败的措施有很大的弊端,他们会使孩子对真实世界里的生活毫无准备。年轻人需要学会,没有人会处处领先,时时成功—即使
