Self-Efficacy refers to a person’s feelings, beliefs and perceptions regarding their ability to be successful at something. In short, self-efficacy is self-confidence. Self-Efficacy goes hand in hand with having a growth mindset. When a person has a growth mindset, they believe that their brain is constantly growing and evolving. They believe that with practice, motivation and hard work they can succeed. With self-efficacy, we have confidence in our abilities, and know that we are capable of growing, changing and doing better. Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
