Everyone faces challenges - obstacles to overcome, exciting goals to meet - and it's easy to get stuck on the negatives. Mindset Power shows kids how to change the way they think about their challenges so they can grow from them, feel better about themselves, and get better at the things they try.
With an introduction to growth mindset, the book offers information on how to set goals, overcome self-doubt, and build resilience. Full of journal prompts to "Jot Your Thoughts" and suggestions of "Something to Try," the book empowers kids to tackle not only their big exciting dreams, but also the daily tasks they may dread or put off. Kids can do more and be more when they believe in themselves.
Building on insight from the author's years of teaching growth mindset in the classroom, Mindset Power is a positive, practical, you-can-do-it guide to accomplishing goals and building a better mindset - for kids of all abilities. Digital content includes handouts for activities found in the book.
