In a modern culture of overprotective parenting, how do we equip our children to have the grit to flourish in an ever changing world. Or are we just setting them up for failure? Education experts Rebecca Glover and Clemmie Stewart believe “trampoline parenting” is the solution. Their view is that children can only learn resilience and ‘character’ through experiencing failure. It is what we learn from our mistakes that helps us bounce back from adversity and understand our fit within the wider world.
