Cultivating Growth Mindset In Kids (and my top 10 tips)
There are two main mindsets we can navigate life with: growth and fixed. Having a growth mindset is essential for success. In this episode, we explore how to develop the growth mindset in kids.
Carol Dweck, who is widely known to study human motivation and is often thought of when we talk about growth mindset said something really important during my teaching career that changed everything for me. It changed what I was doing when it came to lesson planning or putting together really cool units, etc. She said, “Your view of yourself can determine everything. If you believe that your qualities are unchangeable — the fixed mindset — you will want to prove yourself correct over and over rather than learning from your mistakes.”
