Research shows that that the best way to raise smart children is not tell them theyre smart. Inspired by the popular mindset idea that hard work and effort can lead to success, Making A Splash is the first of its kind type of story. The book has a fun story for kids and a nonfiction part for parents. Children fall into one of two categories: Fixed and Growth. Some children have what psychologists call a Fixed Mindset. They think they only have a fixed amount of intelligence. When they try something new and fail, theyre embarrassed because they think it proves they arent smart enough. Other children have a growth mindset. They realize that its not about how smart you are today, but about how smart you can become. They value learning over looking smart. These kids understand that even geniuses must work hard. People are held back more due to their mindset than their actual capability. The best way to learn is through stories and examples. So I spent the past year figuring out methods to encourage the growth mindset. 30 pages of story + 14 pages for parents about growth mindset. Gobrain.com http://bit.ly/1DEgzXI
