We absolutely love this poster! Often, kids pick up the language we use and mimic after us. A careless question of “Can you really do it?” may seem harmless to us, but can undermine and affect a child’s confidence & ability to perform. As adults, we need to practice responsible speech in our conversations with the little ones, so as to build their confidence and empower them with the critical mindset for the future. It may be difficult for us as old habits die hard, so pick one of the above that you like and practise using it frequently with your child until it becomes natural for you and your child.
Do share with us if you have other phrases which you use often that aids in a child’s growth mindset!
