In my latest CHEX Daily segment, I chat with hosts Teresa Kaszuba and Mike Judson about fostering a growth mindset in your children – it’s so important! We talk about:
- What do “growth mindset” – and its opposite, “fixed mindset” – mean anyway?
- What are some specific ways parents can help? (Hint: saying “You take after me, I can’t do Math” is not helpful.)
- How does growth mindset apply in areas other than academics (for kids and adults)?
P.S. Thanks to Chabot Elementary in Oakland, California for putting some great resources on their website for random Canadian teachers to Google and find, including a Powerpoint presentation for parents, parent tip sheet and student handout. You can find it all here:
