Growth Mindset for Parents
What is a growth mindset is, why it is important, and what practices can parents use to support their children in developing this learning belief? This website includes videos, articles, and activities designed to educate parents in how students’ mindsets affect their achievement and how parents promote their child’s mindset through the types of praise they give and through the responses they give when their child makes mistakes.

The Edutopia website provides curated collections of resources related to building the skills, growth mindset, and necessary supports to help young people confront adversity, cope with challenges, and demonstrate perseverance to attain goals. The website provides resources for both parents and educators. Topics addressed include nurturing resilience, promoting growth mindsets, managing stress, learning from mistakes, and responding to trauma and tragedy.
