Develop your growth mindset, not only in school but in your personal life. Our brain functions like a muscle, and the more we use it, the stronger it becomes.
We think that our intelligence is fixed--either we are smart or not. However, scientific studies have proven our brain functions like a muscle; the more we use it, the quicker we become.
The possible symptoms of children with a fixed mindset have the following qualities:
- Try hard to appear as smart
- Give up easily
- Ignore feedback
- Feel threatened by other people’s success
Growth mindset is celebrating the process of which a child persevere through a challenge without giving up. If you “Praise the Process,” your child will likely become an overcomer with obstacles in their learning. These are a few phrases to promote a growth mindset:
- What a great way to approach the task
- I noticed you remembered the steps in solving the problem
- I’m observing the way you’re approaching the challenge, and I like your effort
- I see that you’re trying again and you haven’t given up
