Happy New Year!

In celebration of getting rid of 2020, I wanted to share a resource with you that I love called Big Life Journal. You can sign up to receive a fun free weekly activity and item to print that will help you grow as a parent and foster bonds within your family by modeling Growth Mindset.

People with skills in Growth Mindset are happier and more successful because they have confidence in embracing challenges, put forth more effort, use mistakes as learning opportunities, and build life-long skills in resilience. Growth Mindset is the key to resilience and necessary for success. Big Life Journal can help you teach this to your child.

Check out 7 Fun Goal Setting Activities for Children here. I especially love the Wheel of Fortune!

At this link, you can sign-up to receive your free weekly email for a children's activity instill a Growth Mindset within your home.
