The Theory of Growth Mindset

May 2019

If you haven’t read Dr. Lisa Damour’s book, Under Pressure: Confronting the Epidemic of Stress and Anxiety in Girls, then this summary article is a must read for you! In “How to Help Teenage Girls Reframe Anxiety and Strengthen Resilience,” Deborah Farmer Kris reminds us that “Some degree of stress and anxiety is not only normal but essential for human growth.” When stress and anxiety become untenable, she offers strategies gleaned from Dr. Damour’s book that are helpful and effective. Kris emphasizes that stress will always be a part of our lives but with effective resources, we can march forward with productive and happy lives. If I could assign summer reading for parents, it would include both this article and this important book.
