I was an ESL teacher for a year and a half, and I had a 9year old student break down in tears because she couldn’t draw a circle perfectly. It is important for children to know that we aren’t expecting perfection from them. Yes, we want them to try hard, figure out how to solve problems by themselves, and learn to express themselves, but they also need to know that they are in a safe place where failure doesn’t mean they have lost value. I’m not saying that you haven’t do e this with your child, just saying that this is important, too.
