HowtoHelpChildren BuildaGrowthMindset

“Weknowoneofthegreatestbooststo parents’confidenceoverthepastyearcame fromknowingtheirchildren’swholeselvesare beingnurtured,andwewanttoseethattrend continue,”saidCarterPetersfromKinderCare LearningCenter’seducationteam.“Agrowth mindsethelpschildrentrynewthingsdespite fearoffailure.It’sthekindofthinkingthat allowsinventorsandcreativethinkerstoget excitedabouttryingsomethingnewand ensurestheyhavethecognitiveflexibility andproblem-solvingskillstoworkthrough hurdles.”

“Youngchildrenoftengetexcitedtotry somethingnew,”Peterssaid.“Bypraising effortandshowingchildrenthey’llstillbe lovedandvalueddespitetheoutcome,you canreframehowtheyapproachchallenges andteachthemthatdifficultdoesn’tmean impossible.”

Encouragetheprocess:Peopleoften withholdpraiseuntilthere’saresult,which leadschildrentohurriedlyscribbleapicture toholdupfora“goodjob”insteadof takingtimetofocusontheirefforts.When
