Growth Mindset Training for kids – Dream Catcher
Dream Catcher is a customised Growth Mindset Training for kids – to understand and recognise one-self, assist in developing resilience, help regulate emotions in difficult situations, and to strengthen the growth mindset.
The first part of the Dream Catcher workbook is all about learning to understand and discover one-self, inside and out: what you look like, how others see you, what matters to you and your mental and physical super powers.
Letting the kids actively explore and define these aspects of one-self allows for a clearer image of the positive self and builds on a positive change in behaviour.
If we want to make a change or improvement we first have to identify and index what we have.
In this exercise we have a closer look at who you are, you can draw or write down words that best define you.
Once you’re done, you can ask someone close to you to do the same for you.
Having someone else draw or write things about you can be confrontational, but nothing a good chat and a good listen won’t solve! It is important that kids learn to accept the good and the ugly about themselves. Although it isn’t easy, it does show areas for improvement and those skills can be learned with time.
Although these exercises are self-explanatory, assisted guidance is always available through coaching sessions or join the closed Facebook group for advise on lifting, growing and generating a growth mindset with kids.
