“I see this a lot with parents. I don’t know when we stopped letting our kids fail,” Reese mused on Good Inside with Dr. Becky podcast, via BuzzFeed News.

She continued, saying, “I think learning from failure is actually a valuable tool that you can’t take away from kids. You rob them if you don’t let them sit in the discomfort of the experience.”

For instance, Reese referenced Ava‘s attempts to become a basketball player, which did not go according to plan.

“She couldn’t do the layups, she just couldn’t get the coordination with the dribbling — she just didn’t like it,” the actress recalled. After one particularly bad game, Reese broached the topic with Ava.

“I said, ‘You know what… maybe you’re not good at basketball,’” she revealed. “She was like, ‘What! How can you tell me I’m not good at something?’ I was like, ‘It’s actually really important to learn what you’re not good at.’”
