Learn how to improve your child's growth mindset
key quotes from our best seller
For parents, helping their child or teenager learn on their own at home can get a little overwhelming. This is where having a growth mindset comes in. There are challenges, but with the right mindset and strategies, distance or at-home learning will become much easier.
The growth mindset is built and maintained through the process of practice and hard work, not the end result. When your child or their team wins, praise them for how hard they work at practice. Show them that winning was a direct result of hard work and perseverance.
When your child experiences failure, praise them for trying, then offer to help them figure out how to succeed at the failed task or encourage them to find the solution on their own.

The growth mindset is a concept in psychology that says that intelligence and talent are not fixed. People who have a growth mindset believe that they can change their abilities by working hard, learning from feedback, and practicing.
These people also believe they can improve these abilities with effort. In contrast, individuals who hold a fixed mindset about their intelligence or talents think of them as unchangeable- either you have it or don't. As a result, they tend to give up more easily when faced with challenges because they do not see any potential for improvement and often dismiss new information because they assume do not pertain to them
