Encouraging children to have a growth mindset is very important. Children with fixed mindsets tend to ignore feedback, whereas children with growth mindsets tend to learn from feedback.
What can you do to help? Encourage Failure! Your child needs to know that failure can and does happen. And that is okay! Remind your child that each time he/she fails and tries again, his/her brain is growing stronger! Don’t try to stop or prevent failure- this is how children learn to persevere in the face of challenges.
