I have been advocating “resiliency” in children for a long time now. Nice to see a book that brings it all together!
Paul Tough, author of How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and The Hidden Power Of Character, talks about helping kids to develop into successful adults.
How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories—and the stories of the children they are trying to help—Tough traces the links between childhood stress and life success. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do – and do not – prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to help children growing up in poverty.
