Growth Mindset

It is important that as parents and teachers, we praise children for the effort they put in, not how clever they are or if they came first in a test or race. We need to reinforce a growth mindset that praises effort and learning from mistakes. You can help at home, by praising hard work, effort and not protecting your child from failure but treating it as chance to learn and grow.
