Event description

Description

Research shows that parents can have a powerful impact on their children's mindsets. The language you use and the actions you take can both influence and inspire your children's behavior and school success.

Teaching your children to see mistakes as learning opportunities, to understand the value of practice and to try different strategies when they are frustrated are all strategies that will cultivate growth mindsets.

In our December Lunch and Learn, we will host New York Times Best Selling Education Author, Mary Cay Ricci, national speaker, consultant and author of Mindsets for Parents: Strategies to Encourage Growth Mindsets in Kids.

Mary Cay will discuss:

- Ideas for building a growth mindset home environment
- Strategies for building resilience and perseverance in our children
- Ways to respond effectively to mistakes and frustration

As parents, we can sometimes find ourselves overly concerned about grades, advancements on sports teams, or our children's growing 'resume'. We can put more emphasis on the final destination and sacrifice the need to teach the 'process of learning' on the path to get there.

Mary Cay will help us build a growth mindset culture at home by providing us tools to help respond to our children's frustration, model optimism, and to keep our child’s self-esteem strong.
