Parenting: The difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset

As a parent, you come with a certain mindset about how to raise your kids in terms of discipline, motivation and an expectation to see good results on the marks card every year.

Otherwise, you'll end up pushing your kids the wrong way and giving them inferiority complexes that they'll find very hard to overcome even when they're adults. Angie Aker details the difference between a growth and a fixed mindset in her article titled "One little change in how you talk to your kids can help them be more successful", first published on Upworthy. Our infographic is based on this.
