Making a mistake can leave anyone feeling sick in the stomach or thinking that the world is going to end. Learning how to cope with mistakes - and how to stop that "ache" - can be one of the hardest parts of growing up. The latest entry in Free Spirit's acclaimed Laugh and LearnĀ® series takes a closer look at the mistakes kids make - honest and intentional - and offers practical advice on how to bounce back. With a healthy dose of humor, readers learn that embarrassing moments aren't forever and a sincere apology can go a long way.
