Mindset by Carol Dweck
HF Parent/Teacher Book Study - Part 3, Chapters 7-8
"Praising children's intelligence harms their motivation and it harms their performance."
Dweck explains the importance of the right kind of praise in the chapter called, "Parents, Teachers, and Coaches: Where do Mindsets Come From?" Specifically, we should not be praising children for their intelligence or how smart they are. We should be praising them for their efforts, strategies, and what they have learned from previous errors.
