How to Praise Children (more Mindset stuff)

For some reason, I’m really into Carol Dweck’s work on Mindsets right now (see previous post) and it’s quite the buzzword. I  keep coming across it everywhere.  She’s cited in the very first chapter of  Po Bronson’s Nurture Shock and in two books I’m currently reading: Daniel Pink’s Drive and the Heath brothers’ just released, Switch.

I came across this video through Dweck’s brainology site which really explains Bronson’s and Dweck’s concept of praise perfectly.
