Most Effective Ways to Praise and Motivate Girls (and Boys too I Bet!)

From A Mighty Girl:

'Dweck, one of the world's leading researchers in the field of motivation, has found that there is a strong praise paradox for girls: "What we’ve shown is that when you praise someone, say, ‘You’re smart at this,’ the next time they struggle, they think they’re not. It’s really about praising the process they engage in, not how smart they are or how good they are at it, but taking on difficulty, trying many different strategies, sticking to it and achieving over time.”'
