Everybody makes mistakes
Making mistakes is a part of life. Everyone makes them ALL the time.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a parent, a teacher, a police officer or even the Queen! There will be times when you make mistakes.
You might feel afraid or worried about what other people think of you.
It can be hard to admit that you’re wrong or made a mistake. Try not to be hard on yourself. It’s okay to make mistakes. Nobody’s perfect.
Mistakes teach us a lot of things. There’s always something to learn.
Getting good at something like making new friends, doing homework, or learning a new game, means being okay with making mistakes. It’s how we learn to do things better!
Try to work out how the mistake happened.
This can help you know what to do differently next time. The important thing to remember is that we are always learning. Getting better at things takes practice.
