What is the effect of teachers’ and parents’ praise? Focus specifically on Dweck’s points on praising
ability and talent versus effort. If you are a parent, how do you praise your children? What is the effect? If you

praise you? What was the effect? Use relevant ideas from Dweck and specific personal examples as you
address your essay to your children or parents and teachers.
