Q and A with the brilliant Alicia Malnati! @aliciahmalnati

Learning can be hard and the urge to give up is a human one...here are three things you can do to help your children love learning for the sake of learning...

1. Give goals that are challenging (novel) but attained

2. Teach that effort is at the heart of all mastery

3. Praise tactics not traits...say "I love how you did x or y or z" instead of saying "you're so smart or talented" which makes it scarier to try new things ("if I fail this task then I might not be smart or talented)
