So What!?!?!?
Carol Dweck Columbia University
"Of those praised for their effort, 90 percent chose the harder set of puzzles. Of those praised for their intelligence, a majority chose the easy test. The “smart” kids took the cop-out."
When kids hear "you're so smart"
They learn to "Look smart, don’t risk making mistakes."
ALL Learning

TEEN Brain
Prefrontal Cortex
controls impulse judgment and reasoning
Pruning= "Use it or lose it"
Brain keeps systems of synapses
that are efficient and discards others
Actions decide which synapses stay
How kids spend their time is crucial to brain development
The processes they form in adolescence form the foundation that affects their ability to think and take healthy risks...

risk-taking tendency
"In July 2001, incoming Harvard President Lawrence Summers publicly ridiculed the value of "honors" after discovering that 94 percent of the college's seniors were graduating with them. Safer to lower the bar than raise the discomfort level."
What are
we doing?
Psychologist Jerome Kagan has shown unequivocally that what creates anxious children is parents hovering and protecting them from stressful experiences.
"Children need to be gently encouraged to take risks and learn that nothing terrible happens," says Michael Liebowitz, clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University and head of the Anxiety Disorders Clinic at New York State Psychiatric Institute

KNOW THAT:
"The study - published in the February 2012 issue of Pediatrics - found that because of stricter licensing codes, playgrounds are now less physically challenging - and more boring - to children."
"Children seek out opportunities for risk-taking and it is the responsibility of play provision to respond with exciting and stimulating environments that balance risks appropriately.”
J. Adams, ‘Risk,’ UCL Press, ISBN 1 85728 068 7, 1995.
More and more studies are coming out that reinforce risk taking and free play as a vital part of youth development
Thankfully!
“Climbing equipment needs to be high enough, or else it will be too boring in the long run,” Dr. Sandseter said. “Children approach thrills and risks in a progressive manner, and very few children would try to climb to the highest point for the first time they climb. The best thing is to let children encounter these challenges from an early age, and they will then progressively learn to master them through their play over the years.”
"By gradually exposing themselves to more and more dangers on the playground, children are using the same habituation techniques developed by therapists to help adults conquer phobias." Dr. Sandseter and a fellow psychologist, Leif Kennair, of the Norwegian University for Science and Technology"
