Why Dads Should Praise Effort and Not Results

Feb. 23, 2017

In episode 99 of The Good Dad Project, Larry Yatch from Sealed Mindset told us about the importance of instilling a growth mindset in our children. I think, like me, a lot of dads listening to that show experienced some major revelations about how we've been praising and encouraging our children. In this week's Thursday Throwdown, I share my personal experience with my nine-year-old son and how I might have negatively impacted his attitude toward wrestling by praising the results instead of his effort.
