Dreikurs (1968) believed that children who failed were not bad or lazy but, instead, discouraged. To face and fulfill one’s life tasks requires the courage to be imperfect, to make mistakes, to fail occasionally but to try again. For too many children, school becomes a confirmation of their private assessment that they are not adequate. In later life, many of these individuals will be consistently unemployed, welfare recipients, or institutionalized. Although it appears difficult for persons to change in later life, Adlerians believe that one always has that capability.
