Growing with feedback

Children often see feedback as a personal attack. It's to be expected, as us adults often feel the same. But feedback is how we get better. Feedback enables us to grow personally and professionally and achieve better outcomes.

So how do we go about helping our children develop a positive approach to receiving feedback and embracing it as a way to learn and grow?

The starting point is having discussions with children on the following questions:

What is feedback?

What is the purpose of feedback?

What is a good feedback? (And no, it is not "This is awesome mate!")

How can we provide a constructive feedback?

These discussions are very helpful in getting children to understand the importance of asking for feedback, that a good feedback is one that helps you improve and get better, that feedback is not a personal attack and that feedback is something you should seek and not something to avoid.
