Science says parents of successful kids have these 9 things in common

Science says parents of successful kids have these 9 things in common….parents skills matter

1. They teach their kids social skills.

2. They have high expectations.

3. The moms work.

4. They have a higher socioeconomic status.

5. They’ve attained higher educational levels.

6. They teach their kids math early on.

7. They develop a relationship with their kids.

8. They’re less stressed.

9. They value effort over avoiding failure.

A “fixed mindset” assumes that our character, intelligence, and creative ability are static givens that we can’t change in any meaningful way, and success is the affirmation of that inherent intelligence, an assessment of how those givens measure up against an equally fixed standard; striving for success and avoiding failure at all costs become a way of maintaining the sense of being smart or skilled.

A “growth mindset,” on the other hand, thrives on challenge and sees failure not as evidence of un-intelligence but as a heartening springboard for growth and for stretching our existing abilities.
