How can we help children towards building a positive self-identity? An “I Can!” attitude?
This week Abigail shares the life-changing moment she cracked her tens times tables at 8-years-old, and how this win led to a paradigm shift in mindset – between what she thought she could do and what she could actually do.
A sense of accomplishment and winning can spur a sense of interest, self-directed learning and discovery, but how can we work with a child to help them win at challenging tasks, even when we do not feel good or confident about the task?
And how can that support change in our children's outlook and influence how they view their abilities for the rest of their lives?
One Tool You Can Use To Build Resilience and Confidence
In an age of entitlement, we're talking about why it is still important to cultivate a growth mindset – a mindset that allows us to celebrate our wins, our children's wins and makes space for winning – and losing.
How Can We Foster Growth Mindset with our Kids?
Now, what if your child is not yet attuned to his or her own greatness, even if you are? On the episode, we also examine the ways kids can fight their own abilities, why things feel hard for them and one tool you have to help your child shine.
