Raising Children with Grit: Parenting Passionate, Persistent, and Successful Kids Laila Sanguras

Parents want to raise happy, successful children, and Raising Children with Grit has the tools to help achieve that goal. Grit, the combination of passion and perseverance, has more of an influence on success than cognitive ability. By focusing on self-discipline, parents can cultivate perseverance in their children. This guide helps parents couple that with an emphasis on curiosity and interest-building activities. Additionally, this book offers tips for parents about working with school personnel, how to model grit in their own lives, and how social factors can influence the development of grit.
