Growth Mindset Quotes for Kids

What is growth mindset?

A growth mindset means that you believe your intelligence and talents can be developed over time. A fixed mindset means that you believe intelligence is fixed—so if you’re not good at something, you might believe you’ll never be good at it.  (mindset health)

Importantly having a growth mindset encourages kids to keep trying, to work on their skills, to be positive and solution focussed and to not feel defeated or give up. A fixed mindset alternately can lead to low self-esteem and limited experiences. A growth mindset is much more useful! Growth mindset phrases can be motivational.

How can growth mindset quotes for kids be helpful?

Kids do not need to be overwhelmed with advice  they just need a little bit of inspiration on a daily basis to keep them positive. Bite sized chunks. They listen much more when what they are told is less. And quotes can really make us think and change our moods in small but powerful ways.

They can be shared over breakfast or written on lunch box notes or read out at bedtime or left on a pillow. My quote books a offer daily growth mindset inspiration in the form of a quote or activity or affirmation. They make the most beautiful gift.
