  • MARCH: Parenting with a Growth Mindset
    • Raising a resilient and successful child starts with learning to understand them better. Parents will learn how to parent using a growth mindset and how to help their child step out of their comfort zone, handle disappointment, set healthy boundaries, and increase motivation. These are valuable skills that correlate to engaging and succeeding in the school environment. This approach has proven successful with students who are fearful of failure, as it teaches them how to embrace a ‘bounce back’ mentality. Click here to watch the recording of this session.
