Is your child willing to take on challenges and keep working on them despite setbacks? That’s a sign of a growth mindset—believing that abilities can improve over time. But some struggling learners have a fixed mindset. They think that their abilities are set and won’t ever improve, even with effort.
Your child can work to develop a growth mindset. It’s an ongoing process, but you can help your child move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset by doing some simple growth mindset exercises.
