Growth mindset is powerful. But how can you help children develop it?
The reality is most parents and teachers are not sure where to start.
Here's a good way to introduce these affirmations to your children or students:
1. Use the printable "We are a Growth Mindset Family" from BELOW.
2. Take a moment to sit with your child and discuss what it FEELS like to be a growth mindset family. The printable has two suggestions and you can add your own. Possible answers might include "persistent", "hardworking", etc.
3. Have the same discussion about what SOUNDS and LOOKS like to be a growth mindset family. You can refer to the list of 25 growth mindset statements for ideas.
4. Post completed worksheets around your home or classroom for a daily reminder.
