Growth Mindset

Earlier this year the teachers had a professional learning day on developing and working with a Growth Mindset.  The following link is a resource for parents and addresses the question: “What can I do to help my kids develop a growth mindset?”

The Growth Mindset for Parents Course is now available at www.mindsetkit.org/growth-mindset-parents It is a free 30 minute course that teaches parents what a growth mindset is, why it’s important, and best practices to support their children in developing this learning belief.

What you can expect:

  • Three brief videos that highlight research-based parenting advice for growth mindset

  • Questions to help parents reflect on their family's mindsets

  • Recommended activities to try with one's kids

  • Parent-friendly descriptions of relevant academic studies (and links to the original articles for parents who want to really dig in)
