This week on the podcast, we continue our deep dive discussion of the book Mindset by Carol Dweck with a focus on parenting. We delve into what growth mindset looks like in parenting, what it doesn’t look like, and how to pass on a growth mindset. 

Growth mindset parenting is a little more than “praise the process, not the outcome”. It also isn’t enthusiastically and blindly saying “you can do anything you can put your mind to!” Rather, it looks more like helping your children to find the resources to make progress towards their goals, such as hard work, trying new strategies, and seeking input from others.
