How can you help to instill a Growth Mindset in your child?
Mindset Introduction for Parents:
2) Help your child embrace failures/mistakes as learning experiences
3) Reinforce the concept of "YET!" - If your child feels like he/she is not good at a certain subject or is not understanding a concept being learned in class, remind him/her that he/she just hasn't mastered it...YET! With hard work and practice, growth will occur.
