“I’m tiiiiiired!” “My hand is sore!” “How many more minutes until I get a break?” These are questions we may hear repeatedly as our kids are pushing through school-related tasks. How can my child play video games or build Lego structures for hours on end, when he/she can only colour or write sentences for mere minutes? It’s all about building growth mindset and resiliency, and with some persistence, you will get there (and the whining will stop…that’s a promise!).
