Comfort – Stretch – Panic

When we are faced with a learning experience it is important that we recognise the importance of challenge and support. Completing something that is really easy can be useful in developing confidence, however if we are only ever given things that are really easy and we don’t learn from them we can become bored and want to give up. 

Learning a new skill requires being taught it properly first. We need support to overcome challenging situations, however if we are given too much support then we can grow to depend on it, which means that when we are required to do things independently we can find things a real struggle.
