The Power of Believing That You Can Improve
A TEDx Norrkoping Talk, by Carol Dweck
Dr. Dweck explains the power of responding to children with “Not Yet” when they’re having trouble understanding. If they are told “Not Yet”, they experience a problem as one they can solve given time and guidance, rather than something they have “failed”. Instead of setting children up for failure, low self-esteem, and cheating, we can help them become curious, interested in learning, and excited by a challenge!
