All parents want their children to be successful in school, sports, and extracurricular activities. But it's not just about giving your kids praise or setting them on the right direction. Research shows that success is often dependent on mindset. Hard work, perseverance, and effort are all hallmarks of a growth mindset. That's where Mindsets for Parents: Strategies to Encourage Growth Mindsets in Kids comes in. Designed to provide parents with a roadmap for developing a growth mindset home environment, this book's conversational style and real-world examples make the popular mindsets topic approachable and engaging. It includes tools for informally assessing the mindsets of both parent and child, easy-to-understand brain research, and suggested strategies and resources for use with children of any age. This book gives parents and guardians powerful knowledge and methods to help themselves and their children learn to embrace life's challenges with a growth mindset and an eye toward increasing their effort and success!

About the Author:

Mary Cay Ricci is an education consultant, speaker, and author of the New York Times best-selling education title, Mindsets in the Classroom and its companion book, Ready-to-Use Resources for Mindsets in the Classroom.

Margaret Lee is an education administrator and consultant in Maryland. Over the last 20 years, she has been a teacher, professional learning specialist, and school administrator.

Review:

I think using the ideas in this book about how to praise students and give them feedback in order to encourage a growth mindset can help lead students to discover they have many more talents than they realized . . . I enjoyed reading this book and will probably read it again. I felt like I got some wonderful, practical ideas that I can use when working with math students and with teachers who work with students, my own children, and even my nephews. If you interact with children at all, I would strongly recommend this book. --Lori Hochstetler, MiddleWeb

This thorough study of a method for helping children learn and succeed should be of interest to adults looking for guidance in these areas. --Vicki Foote, Children's Literature

The authors succeed in relating the research and guidance in a very understandable way in a succinct 150 pages. Their advice and examples will appeal to a wide target audience of parents, ranging from those with young children to college-age youth. Ricci and Lee provide many illustrations about how parents' feedback can focus on children's effort, strategy, and persistence rather than assumed inherent abilities. --Steven A. Meyers, APA PsycCRITIQUES
