A growth mindset, where a learner believes their talents can be developed, lays the foundation for that learner to manage both achievement and failure. Research links growth mindsets to many benefits, including: higher resilience and comfort with positive risk taking; striving for ambitious goals; higher motivation; enhanced brain development; lower stress, anxiety and depression; better work relationships; and higher performance levels. Hungry to Learn will provide tools to parents for how to help their children develop a growth mindset, and provide a forum for parents to share best practices.
