Children who think that intelligence can be improved tend to pay more attention to correcting their mistakes, whereas those who think intelligence is unaffected are less open to development.
It is important that the child knows that he can always develop"The important thing is that we see mistakes as a kind of learning opportunity, and don't be embarrassed. Ideally, we communicate to the kids that they can develop steadily, become smarter and smarter, so it's okay to make some mistakes, "says the research leader. Hans Schroder, a PhD student at Michigan State University. The study, published in the journal Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience, was the first to study children's experience and brain function at the same time. The average age of the participants was 7 years, with a total of 123 children participating in the experiment. One group consisted of children who thought we could be better, while others thought we could not. As it turned out, the first group of children had a more active brain activity in attention-related areas, when adults were reminded of mistakes, while children who considered "smart" were not even paying attention to work. parents and educators point out mistakes made by children so that they can learn from them - instead of leaving mistakes to it.
