Do you know what a ‘growth mindset’ is? A growth mindset essentially means that a person is able to believe they’re capable of changing and evolving and can see potential for growth in many situations.

While we may still have hard days and sometimes struggle to embrace a growth mindset, it’s important to have one so that we don’t automatically want to throw in the towel as soon as things go wrong.

As a parent, fostering a growth mindset in your kids is crucial to how they mature over time. After all, you want your kids to know that they will learn and grow over time, even during periods of struggle.

Not only will encouraging your kids to have a growth mindset improve their self-worth, but it will also inspire and encourage them to try new things.

While it may sound intimidating, there are a few simple ways to foster a growth mindset in your child.

For starters, you’ll want to help them remain positive. Growth and positivity go hand in hand. If your child sees you walking around the house, behaving or acting negatively all the time, or constantly freaking out over small issues, they’ll be more likely to imitate those responses.

Try showing your kid what looking on the bright side is like and making the most out of any situation.

To get your kid to finish a task, whether it be finishing their homework or cleaning their room, rewarding them afterward will help motivate them and build positive patterns over time.

I’m not saying you should go out and buy them the toy they’ve been asking for the second they finish their homework, but remind them of small and more fulfilling rewards.
