How to Raise a Child With a Growth Mindset?
Strategies and tools to foster a mindset for success.
In this workshop we will be introducing you to the concept of a growth mindset.
"If we want to give our children a gift, the best gift that we can give is to teach children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep learning. That way children don't have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence." Carol Dweck.
In our ever changing world, children need to be able to apply critical thinking to a problem.
To know that if they fail, they can try something different in order to experience success.
A growth mindset builds resilience and grit.
We will be unpacking ways for teachers and parents to foster a growth mindset in young children in order to give them the tools and strategies they will need for success.
For most of my life I have been surrounded by little people, whether it has been during my 19+ years of working as an early childhood teacher and centre director or as a parent of my own 3 children.
As a teacher and a parent, I advocate for the RIE way of being and a massive believer in empowering children to learn through free play. Respectful relationships and heart led leadership are at the soul of who I am. I am a proponent of kindness and a seeker of joy.
My passion has always been fostering the lifelong love for learning in children. I work with teachers to empower them to be heart-led early childhood professionals. I work with centre owners, centre leaders, teachers and teams. I am also a provider of SELO for the Ministry of Education in New Zealand
My mission is to empower you by giving you the tools to help you to co-create magic in your life, your team's lives and the lives of the children and families in your place - because people matter.
