Class Code: Q9XNR

Growth Mindset ways to help your child!!!!

TALK ABOUT IT
Talk with your child about his or her day, but guide the
discussion by asking questions like:
– Did you make a mistake today? What did you learn?
– What did you do that was difficult today?

Instead of saying, “You’re so smart!”
praise effort, goal setting, persisting
through challenges, or being creative.

You can say something like:
– “Wow! You must have worked
really hard on this!”

PRAISE THE PROCESS
THE BRAIN CAN GROW!

Remind your child that his or her intelligence is not fixed.

Remind him/her that when things are difficult, her brain grows if she
persists through the challenge. Each time he/she learns something
new, his/ her brain is making new connections. Your child needs to
know this is possible!

ENCOURAGE FAILURE (say what?!)
HELP THEM CHANGE THEIR DIALOGUE
The way your child talks to himself makes a huge impact on his
mindset. If he says, “This is too hard!” help him change that to
“I can’t do this yet, but I will keep trying.” Give him the words to
say when he is feeling defeated by modeling it yourself!

Your child needs to know that failure can (and often
does) happen and it is okay! Remind him/her that each time
he/she fails and tries again, her brain is growing stronger!

Don’t step in to prevent your child’s failure – this is how
he/she learns to persevere in the face of challenges.
