A Powerful Word: Yet

Although we already know that mistakes make our brain grow it is important that we also learn that just because we can’t do something at this moment in time doesn’t mean we will never learn to do it!  In the world of growth mindset this is called the Power Of Yet! An important thing for all of us to remember is to not be afraid to ask for help!  Some children (and adults) feel if they ask for help it means they are not smart! We want the children to not be embarrassed to ask for help as when a child asks for help he or she learns new things and therefore your brain grows!
