EP 30: Your Child’s Growth Mindset. With Alexandra Eidens

Being a life long learner, I was intrigued by how Alexandra Eidens, founder of Big Life Journal, helps us understand why having a growth mindset is important for both our children and for ourselves as parents.

What we Talked About

  • What is the difference between fixed and growth mindset? 
  • Why praising intelligence might not great for your child’s growth mindset.
  • How personal development led her to create Big Life Journal. 
  • How to help your child develop a growth mindset.

Things to Remember
