| ||How do you communicate if you won't hit an estimate?|

|New developers (I consider myself here) will always estimate wrong. They will also feel bound to their estimates as deadlines.|
I've seen this happen with myself, and now with another developer I've been helping along (we both do consulting & build websites for people). Strikes me as the sort of problem we didn't know we had until we get in the thick of it, and I wasn't satisfied with my answer for her.
I know this is a basic question, but figured I'd ask, what's the high value way to demonstrate willingness to share estimate revisions promptly and transparently? What's important to remember when you start getting stressed out?
