“Kids who are recognized for their intelligence (‘your’e so smart!’) tend to give up when things are difficult or challenging to them. Kids who are recognized for their ‘work ethic’ (‘it’s awesome to see how much effort you put in to learning that new skateboard trick’) keep on trying when faced with challenges or difficulties.“
