Helpful praise vs. hurtful praise

leave a comment »

I blogged earlier about how to praise children in such a way that it doesn’t damage them. I see now that the psychologist whose work was reported on in that article, Carol Dweck of Stanford University, has a book: Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. It seems as though it’s a book that will be worth reading, especially by parents.
