Parents

Parenting is tricky. There's so many areas to navigate and its not always a smooth path!

Mindful Growth Mindset Parenting

Two sessions that explore the research of Carol Dweck on mindsets.The sessions explore fixed and growth mindsets and identify ways to develop both your growth mindset and the mindset of your children.

These workshops give you practical ideas to develop the use of process praise, enhance the acceptance of mistake making as learning opportunities, tips to seek challenges and an understanding of the role of the brain in emotional regulation. Showing your children that you are excited by challenges, see mistakes as learning opportunities, and understand the value of practice and trying different strategies will go a long way in cultivating their growth mindsets!

"If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don't have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence." _ Carol Dweck Psychology Professor at Stanford University whose research identified the fixed and growth mindset.
