achieve your ambition.Failure doesn’t mean you are a failure. It means you

A parent’s worst nightmare is that their child might be hurt. However, being protective
of one’s child might cause himor her more harm than good. A "cotton wool culture" is
protecting children from risk and failure, and preventing them from learning how to
overcome setbacks. Risk and failure are opposite sides of the coin of success and
achievement. If we want achievement then we might occasionally fall down.Children
shouldn't believe life is always easy and that things don't go wrong.Those things do
happen in real life. You fail, you strive, you try again.Young people need to take risks.
If we avoid risk, if we wrap children in cotton wool, we will have a problem.
