Parents Can Help Children Learn From Disappointment

Parents can't spare children from disappointments in life. Nor should you want to. Learning to deal with rejection by a friend, not winning an election and other setbacks help kids cope later in life.

How you respond to your child's disappointments will greatly influence how well she learns to cope. Doing these things will help ensure your child learns to tolerate frustration and even grows from it:

In short, talk to your child and don't be afraid to express your emotions/feelings with them. If you do not talk, you will never know what your child is thinking.
