Publisher's Summary

Second edition: Contains new chapters explaining grit, why you should develop it, questions to ask your kids, additional resources, and much more....

“Our potential is one thing. What we do with it is quite another.” (Angela Duckworth, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance

Everyone has heard of grit. It’s that unique combination of passion and perseverance that has been identified as a key to success. But while much has been written on how to develop these attributes for adults, there hasn’t been much practical advice on how to develop grit in children. 

Your kids are the most important people in your lives. In this increasingly competitive and confusing world they need you to help them be their best. They need you to guide them in developing traits for success and happiness. 

Grit for Kids will teach you how to help your child to develop their own grit in just 16 easy-to-follow chapters. Each one contains real stories of real kids facing common situations, proven steps to take in these situations, and the outcomes after the steps were taken.

  • Grow - achieve conviction in their beliefs; learn to apply ethical and moral behavior; cultivate a desire for a deeper understanding of issues; acquire healthy habits for their body and mind.
