Parent’s Workshop 

Stanford Professor Carol Dweck’s research shows that a growth mindset leads to higher academic achievement. Dweck says: “No parent thinks, ‘I wonder what I can do today to undermine my children’s learning abilities.’ Yet many of the things they do and say often send the wrong message.” Dweck’s research also shows that parents can have a powerful impact on their kids’ mindsets. Kids learn how to behave by imitating others. Kids’ Vision offers parents workshops, in Spanish and English, to help them become mindful their own thinking and of the messages they send with their words and actions. During our workshop parents learn how to model a growth mindset at home, and help their kids develop one.
