  • Misandrist, choosing a boy to demonstrate the fool, and a girl to demonstrate the wise. F off! Men have done far more for the world. This theme is misleading, gynocentric, and tiresome.

  • Examples of Identity and Self-Improvement
    Example 1:
    Fixed Mindset: I’m either good at something or I’m not.

    Growth Mindset: I can improve my skills with effort and practice.

    Tip: Ask children if they have ever struggled to master a skill, and then improved over time. Examples may include reading, writing neatly, riding a bike, or playing an instrument. You can also provide examples from your own life or the lives of famous people. Children will see clear evidence that no one starts out as an expert and they are capable of improvement.

    Example 2:
    Fixed Mindset: When people give me feedback, it feels like criticism.

    Growth Mindset: I appreciate when people give me feedback. It helps me learn and grow.

    Tip: Consider making feedback a two-way conversation in your classroom. On students’ writing, for example, ask them to reply to your comments with a comment saying, “I learned _____________.” Alternatively, provide students with a way to immediately implement the feedback they receive. This makes it easier to link feedback with progress and growth.

    Whether at home or in the classroom, ask for feedback in addition to providing it (e.g., “How could I have made that lesson better?” or, “Is there anything I can do to support you more?”). Model gracefully accepting and learning from feedback.

    Example 3:
    Fixed Mindset: I’m just not good at math.

    Growth Mindset: Math is challenging for me, but I know I can improve.

    Tip: If a child struggles with a specific subject at school, provide extra support and track progress. Parents can collaborate with the child’s teacher and look for educational resources online or in-person. As the child’s grades improve, emphasize how far they have come. Celebrate their hard work and progress and continue to encourage the belief that there is always room to learn and grow.

    Example 4:
    Fixed Mindset: I’m too shy to speak in front of the class.

    Growth Mindset: With practice, I can become more confident and improve my public speaking skills.

    Tip: When children express a specific concern, ask, “What steps can we take to work on that?” If the child is unsure, help them brainstorm.

    For example, a child who fears speaking in front of large groups can first practice with partners or in a small group setting. They can gain public speaking experience in a fun way, like improv or drama classes. As always, celebrate incremental progress and remind the child of how far they have come.

    Example 5:
    Fixed Mindset: I’m already a really good writer. I don’t need to get any better.

    Growth Mindset: There’s always room for improvement.

    Tip: If a child excels in a subject, make sure they are being challenged enough. Children who have mastered grade-level skills without having an opportunity to move beyond grade-level may feel improvement isn’t possible.

    With young writers, for instance, you can encourage them to expand their vocabulary or begin incorporating figurative language into their work. Ask them to write paragraphs instead of just a sentence, or have them enter local writing competitions. Parents can introduce additional enrichment experiences.

    If you need additional support and ideas around your child's identity and self-improvement, check out our “How to Transform Your Child’s Negative Self-Talk Into Self-Love” one-of-a-kind masterclass. In this on-demand program for parents and caregivers, you'll learn why your child has negative self-talk and effective practices to help them turn it into self-love.

    Examples of Identity and Self-Improvement
    Examples of Comparing Self to Others
    Example 6:
    Fixed Mindset: People who are naturally smart don’t need to try hard to succeed.

    Growth Mindset: No one is born smart. We can all improve with time, effort, and persistence.

    Tip: Give examples of people considered geniuses who had to put time and effort into their achievements. For example, Thomas Edison’s teachers thought he was “too stupid to learn.” He was fired from his first two jobs and he made thousands of unsuccessful attempts at inventing the lightbulb before succeeding. Edison wasn’t born a genius; he overcame obstacles, persisted, and worked hard for his intellectual successes.

    Example 7:
    Fixed Mindset: Other people’s successes make me feel bad about myself.

    Growth Mindset: Other people’s successes encourage and inspire me. They show me what is possible.

    Tip: When children feel discouraged by another person’s successes, teach them to ask, “How did this person get there?” When we see someone’s success, we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. We don’t know what is “under the water,” or all the rejection, failure, effort, persistence, and learning that went into their achievements.

    Example 8:
    Fixed Mindset: Successful people are lucky/talented and have never experienced failure.

    Growth Mindset: Failure is part of success. Most successful people have failed many times, but they succeeded because they didn’t quit.

    Tip: It’s important to teach children failure is part of every success story. The people who succeed aren’t the ones who magically got it right the first time; they are the ones who failed and kept trying anyway.

    Famous examples include Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney, Steven Spielberg, and many more. If these names don’t resonate with children, ask them to name a successful person they admire, then research the failures and obstacles they had to overcome.

    Example 9:
    Fixed Mindset: I wish I was as good at baseball as you. It’s not fair.

    Growth Mindset: Your skills as a baseball player inspire me. Do you have any tips to help me improve?

    Tip: Encourage children to ask themselves, “What can I learn from this person?” when they see someone else succeeding. As mentioned above, they can also ask, “How did this person get there?” From a fellow baseball player, for example, children can learn both specific techniques and information about the training and hours of practice that contributed to their success.

    We can view other people’s success stories as inspiring blueprints” rather than condemnations of our own abilities. When the opportunity arises, model this mindset for your children or students.

    Examples of comparing self to others
    Examples of Learning Something New
    Example 10:
    Fixed Mindset: It’s embarrassing when I make a mistake.

    Growth Mindset: Everyone makes mistakes and mistakes are opportunities to learn.

    Tip: Try celebrating mistakes with an action and/or phrase like, “High five, you’re learning!” Consistently connecting mistakes with learning will help children shift their mindset. When you make mistakes, verbally acknowledge them and think out loud about what you learned from the experience.

    Example 11:
    Fixed Mindset: If I don’t try new or hard things, then I won’t fail.

    Growth Mindset: I have to try new and difficult things in order to grow, even if I fail at first.

    Tip: Ask, “What would happen if you never try anything new?” Make a list of all the foods, experiences, movies, and hobbies your children or students would never have discovered if they hadn’t try.

    Discuss skills that have become second nature, like riding a bike, but were once difficult or even scary. If we try to avoid failure, we also miss out on much of the joy, excitement, and growth life has to offer.

    Example 12:
    Fixed Mindset: When I fail, I get frustrated and give up.

    Growth Mindset: When I fail or get frustrated, I try again using the lessons I’ve learned.

    Tip: When Sarah Blakely, the billionaire founder of Spanx, was growing up, her father led weekly dinner table conversations about failure. He asked his children what they had failed at that week, then high-fived them and said, “Way to go!” In addition to celebrating his children’s efforts, he told them to write down the “hidden gifts” they got out of each failure and the lessons they had learned.

    Blakely said this reframed her definition of failure to “not trying,” versus an undesirable outcome. Try implementing a similar ritual at your family dinners or in small groups in your classroom.

  • To me, a growth mindset was closely linked with learning to disregard others' opinions. I used to be so afraid of being unlikeable, unsuccessful that I avoided areas in which I wasn't sure I'd be talented. There were things I didn't try because "everyone" "knew" that they were hopeless or useless, and I was afraid of seeming arrogant by trying to prove them wrong. I had things I "knew" I was "good at"–mostly told to me by others–that I never even considered I might not be good at them, that I could improve at them, or that I might also be good or better at other things. Once I started seriously considering what I wanted and decided to seriously pursue it, I realized I was extremely capable in a variety of areas, and I could readily accomplish all my life goals. Once you convince yourself there is a way, the way becomes apparent.
