How to Have A Growth Mindset for the New School Year

This year at Child’s Voice, our school theme is Growth. With our students, we are working on having a Growth Mindset, which is finding a way to learn from your difficult experiences and challenges instead of seeing them as failures. Having a Growth Mindset can also involve using different problem solving strategies to work through challenges.
