Do NOT praise your child for BEING SMART , this is why

Adopted from the following great insight of Daniel Pink from his book Drive.

“Children who are praised for “being smart” often believe that every encounter is a test of whether they really are. So to avoid looking dumb, they resist new challenges and choose the easiest path. By contrast, kids who understand that effort and hard work lead to mastery and growth are more willing to take on new, difficult tasks.”
