Teaching our children about the value of having a Growth Mindset - the knowledge that putting effort into tasks will help you learn and grow - can empower them. When our children know that their brains grow as they are used, it helps them to try harder to achieve, and to see that mistakes are how we learn. In this webinar, Mary considers the importance of the child's internal voice, and outlines how to support them to develop a growth mindset, with an inner voice that helps them to reach their full potential.
