About This Product

This a worksheet for children to reflect on a time in their life when things went wrong or did not go the way they had hoped. Children can think about how it made them feel, what it made them think and in turn how these feelings and thoughts came out in their actions. This can also lead to further discussion about whether their actions were appropriate and how they may do things differently in the future.

Reflecting on times when things went wrong can be helpful for a child in several ways:

  1. * Learning from mistakes: By reflecting on past experiences, children can identify what went wrong and understand the reasons behind it. This reflection helps them learn from their mistakes and make better decisions in the future.

  2. * Building resilience: Reflecting on challenges and setbacks can teach children that it's normal to encounter difficulties in life. They can develop resilience by recognising that they have the strength to overcome obstacles and bounce back from failures.

  3. * Developing problem-solving skills: Reflecting on past failures allows children to analyse different aspects of a situation and brainstorm alternative solutions. This process helps them develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, enabling them to approach future challenges more effectively.

  4. * Building self-awareness: Reflecting on their own experiences helps children gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their strengths, weaknesses, and emotions. This self-awareness can lead to improved self-confidence and self-esteem.

  5. * Fostering growth mindset: Reflecting on failures can promote a growth mindset, where children understand that intelligence and abilities can be developed through effort and learning. They learn to see setbacks as opportunities for growth and improvement rather than personal shortcomings.

It is important to guide and support children during this reflection process, emphasising the lessons learned and encouraging a positive outlook.

This worksheet can be linked with ideas of cognitive behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy can be helpful for children in many ways. It can help children to understand and cope with their emotions in a more constructive way. It can also be used to teach children healthy coping strategies for managing their anger. Additionally, it can help children to develop better self-awareness and self-management skills.

Included is a PDF printable worksheet with a version for both girls and boys
