Frame of Mind Matters
You want your child to do well in life, right? Then set them up for success by encouraging a growth mindset. People with a growth mindset invite challenges and believe they can improve through hard work. People with the opposite — a fixed mindset — believe they have limits and can’t do better. Students with a growth mindset perform better in school and have more confidence. Parents play an important role in supporting a growth mindset and acknowledging every teenager’s enormous potential. So notice your teen’s innate talents and strengths and point out their effort. Let them see themselves through your eyes.
