Strong Families: Developing Your Child's Growth Mindset

December 21, 2017 - Parkland School Division is proud to present another FREE information session for caregivers.

Our January session will help parents learn how to praise and encourage their children in a manner that emboldens them to face challenges, learn from their mistakes and grow as people.

In addition, it will provide parents with an understanding of the differences between a fixed and growth mindset, and illustrate steps they can take to help their children develop the latter.

Strong Families Series: Developing Your Child's Growth Mindset

Date: Tuesday, January 16
Time: 6-7:30pm
Location: Parkland School Division Centre For Education - Board Room (4603 48th Street, Stony Plain)

The feedback that we give our children can either encourage them to choose a challenge or look for a way out. Studies on different kinds of praise have shown that telling children they are smart encourages a fixed mindset, whereas praising hard work and effort cultivates a growth mindset. When children have a growth mindset, they take on challenges and learn from them, therefore increasing their abilities and achievement.

In this session, we will increase our understandings of mindset, and explore ways that we can help our children develop a growth mindset.

Join us for an in-depth discussion of these topics and more.

A light supper will be provided. Limited childcare is available. Please register early to reserve your spot.
