We’re not there YET! In her book, Mindset, Carol Dweck describes a different way of thinking than most people often think. She encourages people who maybe cannot do something, to not get down on themselves, but to tell themselves, I cannot do this YET!
This fosters the growth mindset. We challenge you to think of three sentences you could add “YET” to. How does it make you feel? We also challenge you to encourage your kids to try out “I can’t do it, yet!” rather than simply saying “I can’t do it.” And in the words of Daniel Tiger, “Keeping trying, you’ll get better!”
Remember that each week of the 5-Day challenge we will be sending out another part of the challenge – to get the full challenge, visit our friends at BIGLIFEJOURNAL.COM. And tag us with your photos on Instagram @wisefamilies or comment on our Facebook page Wise Families! We would love to hear if your kids can embrace the power of YET?!
Maybe not yet, but soon!
Until next week, Be Wise!

We read through your website from start to finish and were so impressed by your extensive credentials and training but, the real reason why we want to work with you is your clear enthusiasm for children and families and the wisdom and deep love you share for both!— Mom of 12-year-old child with special needs
“Amy talks about moving children from being externally-driven to internally-driven…and she helps you get there!”— Parent of 15-year-old daughter
