Happy summer!

I hope you are enjoying the change of pace that summer brings, and that you’ve adjusted to a change in your routine.

On my Greater Good Science Center blog (and also cross-posted here at raisinghappiness.com), we’ve been catching up on the videos series I created with my friend Kelly Corrigan, best-selling author of The Middle Place and Lift.

The first four videos of the series teach about Carol Dweck’s concept of the growth mindset. If you don’t know what that is, those videos are your crash course in how to help your kids fulfill their potential—in school, and all of their activities.

Videos about the “Growth Mindset”:

The Psychology of Success
Bestselling author Kelly Corrigan and I discuss the growth mindset!

Achievement Doesn’t Matter
Kelly Corrigan and I discuss why we need to be more focused on effort than results.

Oh Honey! You’re so, um, well, uh…

Let Your Kids Fail
Kelly Corrigan and I discuss why we should embrace failure.
