"Mom", says Sam. "My class is presenting a poem at Grandparents Day".
"Sam!", I say, "That's great. Tell me about your poem".
"Well", says Sam. "It's. About. Growth. Mindset". (While really emphasizing the vowels in mindset).
"Growth mindset?" I say. "That sounds interesting. Tell me more about what that means".
"Well", says Sam. "When we say that we can't do something, our brain believes us. AND, our brain believes that we will never be able to do that".
"If we have a growth mindset", he continues, "we believe that there is always a possibility that we will be able to do anything".
"And did you know?" he says "that you can turn any of your fixed mind sets into growth mindsets by just adding the word yet?"
"That's why our poem is about the superpower of YET".
"Mom", says Sam, with a twinkle in his eye. "I don't play in the NHL yet".
