When faced with a challenge, some students give up and others embrace the struggle. Some focus on grades and achievement while others focus on learning. What makes the difference? Discover Dr. Carol Dweck’s concept of mindset and how it can transform your interaction with your children and their learning experiences.  Leave the session with practical ideas to develop a growth mindset, which will allow children (and adults, too) to persevere in the face of obstacles.
