This book is designed to help parents support their children to become self-regulated, resilient learners who know how to "fail well".Educationist Lance King designed his first learning improvement programme for school children more than 20 years ago and after trialing it saw amazing results. Children who had previously considered themselves academic failures began to succeed. Since then he has delivered this programme to hundreds of thousands of students, teachers and parents in schools around the world.

The Importance of Failing Well distills his ideas about the "learning skills" approach to learning that he teaches through his programme from a parent's point of view. He guides parents through the learning process and gives practical advice on how they can best encourage and support their children to become resilient, focused, effective, confident learners who react to challenges in a positive way and understand the importance of "failing well".
