Teaching Your Children to have a Growth Mindset is the Most Important Lesson they will Learn
It’s important for parents to understand how their child’s mindset influences their behaviors, motivation, and achievement. We are working with teachers and school administrators and they are embracing growth mindset as a strategy to bolster student motivation, and these same strategies can be used at home with great results.
There may be a mindset movement picking up steam in your child’s school, or it may be something you’ve heard about but want to learn more. Here is a webinar to help parents understand what growth mindset is, why it’s important, and how it can be supported in the home.
Developing a Growth Mindset in Your Child Starts with You!
As parents, you play a huge role in influencing the mindset of your children, so it’s important for you to model a growth mindset for your children. Showing your children that you are excited by challenges, see mistakes as learning opportunities, and understand the value of practice and trying different strategies will go a long way in cultivating their growth mindsets!
Research by Developmental Psychologist Dr Carol Dweck of Stanford University points to people having one of two mindsets: Growth and Fixed. A child’s belief about intelligence is an important factor in whether they become an effective learner. We all hold beliefs about concepts such as ‘intelligence’, ‘ability’ and ‘personality’, with roughly half of us holding a ‘fixed’ mindset and the other half a ‘growth’ mindset.
"In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that's that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don't necessarily think everyone's the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.” Dr Carol Dweck
