THE SECRET OF RAISING SMART KIDS
(from Scientific American Nov 2007)
Most parents worship talent and superior intelligence or ability in their offspring, but this is no recipe for ultimate success. More than 30 years of scientific investigation has found that overemphasis on intellect or talent leaves them vulnerable to failure, fearful of challenges, and unwilling to remedy their shortcomings. They develop the wrong mind-set for success. Encouragement which focuses on effort rather then intelligence and talent helps make them into high achievers in school and in life. Children with a growth mind-set were more likely to outperform more intelligent students . Learning was a more important goal than grades. For parents to emphasize how brilliant or talented a student is may be misguided, it develops the wrong mind-set - better to praise hard work and effort.
