1. Don’t be judgmental. Show that you understand how the error originated.

2. Be understanding, but show the child what is required & then have him or her repeat the activity correctly.

3. Make note of the kinds of mistakes you see. If there is a pattern find exercises designed to overcome it.

4. As a fun project, research with your child famous mistakes that have occurred over the course of history.

5. Have your children create activities for you to complete. Then have them find & correct your errors.
