“I can’t do this!” “My homework is impossible!” Does your child express doubt and negative self-talk and a fixed perspective on solving problems? According to leading Stanford professor Dr. Carol Dweck, author of “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success”, children may exhibit fixed mindsets or growth mindsets. By inculcating the right skills, strategies and attitudes, any child can overcome limiting attitudes.
