Learned Helplessness and Resillience

Every teacher and parent should read the article written by Simone WallingtonĀ from the Parentshop. Simone uses a great video to show how students learn “helplessness.” It is SO quick and easy for some children and adults to learn to feel this way. This is a good starting point for understanding where the root of learned helplessness lies and helping us to be more mindful in our parenting and teaching styles.

Highly recommended and worth watching. Click on the link over here.
