It is easy to fall into the fixed mindset trap. But if you learn to notice destructive thoughts and change them for better ones, you can get out. Encourage your child to practice.
1. Write down the negative thoughts associated with the fixed mindset. For example, “I will never be able to understand math.”
2. Determine why this is a sign of a fixed mindset. Maybe the thought has the words “I can’t” or “I always (never)”?
3. Turn a negative thought into a positive one by changing its beginning and end. For example, “The fixed mindset tells me that I will never be able to understand math. This is not true, because I spend a lot of time studying. I can also ask the teacher to explain difficult topics to me.”
