Do you tell your children that they are smart?

As parents and teachers, we play a crucial role in developing our children’s attitude towards learning. We all want our children to have a positive attitude in life, and that begins with a positive impression of themselves. This leads us to tell them that they are smart, intelligent and so forth. What we may not realize is that this sort of praise may have unintended results that may shape their outlook towards not only learning but also practically everything they encounter in life.
