Sheila and Maria raise awareness on the topic of shifting the family mindset to focus on efforts over achievements. Harnessing the value of perseverance to raise children who thrive on challenges and are excited by learning opportunities.
"The best thing parents can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort and keep on learning."
- Carol Dweck, author of Mindset
This episode is grounded in the belief that "if we want to change the world, we have to change the way we raise our children" (Marianne Williamson).
Praising our children for things that come easy to them, teaches them to expect and need extrinsic praise and rewards. We believe that we can raise children who are able to try hard, embrace challenges, and fail fearlessly by shifting our focus from praising their achievements to praising their efforts.
This episode is packed full of resources, support, and encouragement for parents of young children and older children alike, to help shift your parenting mindset and raise innovative, independent humans who are ready for life's challenges.
