What parent doesn’t want his or her children to be successful in life? If you’re a parent, I’m willing to bet you desire this too. After all, this is one of the reasons we work hard and sacrifice a lot. If you’ve been wondering what you can do to give your kids an edge in life – then wonder no more. Here are five things science has shown parents do for the majority of children who grow into successful adults.
1 Praise the Right Attitude
Children who grow into successful adults have a ‘’growth’’ mindset rather than a fixed one.
To achieve this, parents should praise their kids for the strategies and work they put in to solve problems rather than the result. This type of recognition will develop a lifelong positive attitude towards tackling the problems they will inevitably encounter in life.
As an example, instead of praising a child for getting a high grade on a test, praise them for the work they did to get the result.
