My Life, Your Life: Overcoming Fear of Failure Paperback / softback

Part of the My Life, Your Life series

Paperback / softback


A sensitive and positive look at a big issue that concerns children as they grow up. Lots of people suffer from a fear of failure. It is one of the biggest causes of anxiety and stress for school students.

Fear of failure can make us afraid to try new things.

For some it means that they have to come first at everything they do.

For many fear of failure is linked with low self-esteem.

It can make people feel inadequate and ruin their self-confidence.

This book explores why we fear failure and how we can overcome it - from understanding that making mistakes isn't always bad to breaking out of our comfort zones.

The book ties in with the 'growth mindset' theory - that success is based on hard work, trying and being prepared to fail and pick yourself up again. It is part of the series My Life, Your Life, which takes a sensitive and positive look at some of the issues that concern children aged 10+.

It explores issues including sexuality, gender, self-esteem, prejudice and discrimination and promotes and encourages discussion.

It examines difficult themes from all angles and promotes discussion and debate.

By thinking creatively and critically, children can learn to accept their differences, embrace diversity and improve their sense of self and how they fit into the bigger picture.

Each title also provides advice in the form of practical ways to cope with distressing or difficult situations.
