5 Ways to Support a Growth Mindset
We know from research that a growth mindset matters, but it’s hard for teens to get out of a fixed mindset loop, especially when they are compared to their peers or realize they are measured more by scores than by their effort. But you can help your teen tune into that inner voice that is holding them back and teach them how to quiet it down. Help them see they control how they view obstacles or criticism. And get them comfortable with the word “yet,” as in, “I can’t do it yet.” Parents can encourage and empower a growth mindset.
