Help Youth Form a Growth Mindset
Let's Do This
Are the young people you know starting to feel anxious about the upcoming school year? If so, help them prepare for it by fostering a growth mindset! The idea behind a growth mindset is the belief that a person’s most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. When children take on a growth mindset, they oftentimes perform better in school, build their self-confidence, and become more resilient when faced with challenges.
To help children transition to a growth mindset, start by encouraging them to embrace learning. For example, when a child says that something is too hard for them, reassure them that it might just take some extra work.
Help the children you know practice their growth mindset before school starts. Need ideas on how to do so? Check out this Kidsburgh article on 7 easy ways to add some growth mindset to your child’s summer.
