Why Dads Should Praise Effort and Not Results
In episode 99 of The Good Dad Project, Larry Yatch from SEALed Mindset told us about the importance of instilling a growth mindset in our children. I think, like me, a lot of dads listening to that show experienced some major revelations about how we’ve been praising and encouraging our children. In this week’s Thursday Throwdown, I share my personal experience with my nine-year-old son and how I might have negatively impacted his attitude toward wrestling by praising him for the results instead of his effort.
