The Power of “Yet”
Sometimes it’s simply a matter of mindset in the way students view and then approach challenges. When your child feels stuck and expresses that he can’t do something, ask him to add the word “yet” to the end of his sentence. Not only does “yet” offer a measure of hope that he can, it also acts as a call-to-action to explore and learn more. It’s empowering. Try it!
“I don’t know how to do this … yet.”
“I don’t understand this … yet.”
“I’m not good at this … yet.”
