making marvellous mistakes

Dylan: We’re learning about brains at school. Did you know that when you make a mistake your brain gets bigger? That mistake is a part of your brain and it doesn’t sink into your brain, but instead it goes onto the top or the side or the bottom or the diagonal – anywhere – and it makes a lump which makes it bigger.

Mum: Wow! So it’s OK to make mistakes?

Dylan: Yes. But if you make too many and just keep making mistakes all the time, then you won’t be learning. It’s OK to make mistakes by accident – don’t just make however many mistakes you want.
