Promote Positive Thinking & Living with These Growth Mindset Gift Ideas
With a background in psychology and counseling, I always knew that I wanted to encourage a growth mindset in my children. I’ve seen and experienced the powerful effects of this type of positive thinking and living in my life, as well as the lives of family members and clients.
I first heard about the concept of growth mindset after having our second boy. Reading psychology and self-help books was a way to stay connected to my educational and professional life as a young mom. Carol Dweck‘s work in the field of mindset psychology fascinated me and reinforced my positive parenting approach.
One of the terrific things about learning and practicing growth mindset skills is that you really don’t have to spend any money. Once you’ve discovered the ideas and learned how to apply them to daily life, you’re good to go!
