Parent’s mindset of their children’s abilities impacts the development of growth mindset in students
The relationship between student perception of ability and their academic success rate is a well-known discussion topic within the education field. As the principles of growth mindset have become more prominent practice in teaching practice, there has also been a large focus on asserting that how teachers respond to their student’s success or failure can impact how their students approach their academic work. However, there has not been much research conducted on how parental influence can impact student mindset, with particular focus on how a parent’s mindset of their child’s ability affects the mindset that their child creates for themselves. Through extensive review of important terms and definitions relating to growth mindset and intelligence, the current research literature on growth mindset, along with evaluations on teacher and parental influence on children’s behaviour, the paper sought to prove that it is highly likely that parents are also a major factor in whether or not their children build a growth mindset. The evidence based created through the research allowed for the creation of an applied project, which is a book on growth mindset created for parent and child to engage with together. The purpose of having both parent and child read the book together was so that they could create a co-growth mindset that parents can further help their children develop.
