We all want our kids to grow up with a passion for learning, while recognizing the value of challenging themselves and the importance of effort. These characteristics are a hallmark of a growth mindset.

My guest today is Alexandra Eidens, co-founder of Big Life Journal. She is on a mission to help children develop a growth, resilient mindset so they can face life’s challenges with confidence.

Together with her team, Alexandra creates engaging resources such as journals and printable kits for ages 4 and above. Earlier in 2019, Big Life Journal launched the very first growth mindset podcast for children called Big Life Kids podcast which reached the top charts of iTunes around the world.
