Video: Growth vs. Fixed Mindsets

An overview of the most powerful mindsets — beliefs about why someone is successful or not — and why it’s essential for us to foster growth mindsets in kids.

Looking for more information on growth mindsets? In the Raising Happiness Homestudy, I share appropriate ways to praise children and how to develop grit, one of the greatest (research-proven) predictors of academic success.

    very good…..its easy to understand the difference and to see why the growth mindset is better. BUT…..how do you shift a kid who has a fixed mindset towards growth? I work with LOTS of kids who fit the fixed model………getting them moving in the other direction is VERY challenging.
