One of the most difficult things to determine reality for a child is the difference between success and failure. As long as there is some kind of success, as kids are taught today, the failure is collateral. So you’ve got to give them a chance to perform the failures they are accomplishing so they can figure out what they can get away with down the road. It is not within the curriculum to determine the amount of success or failure...just that it exists. Stepping across the line, no matter how far, is all part of the feeling out process until nothing can be done or anything whether it is feasible or not. And the accepted success doesn’t always include what the people who are trapped within the failure or success part think it is. That is where the reality totally disappears and progressive thinking joins the party and determines that, also.
