“Developing Grit, Self-Control and a Positive Mindset in your Children: The Keys to Success”
Nobel prize winners and Olympic athletes do not succeed by chance. A growing body of research is finding that grit, self-control, and a growth mindset can have a strong influence on the academic achievement and emotional well-being of children and teens. Furthermore, these qualities have been found to be the “secret sauce” to their success. In this talk, you will learn the latest research on grit, self-control, growth mindset and “failing forward”, as well as strategies that promote these characteristics. Dr. Baruch-Feldman is the author of the recently released book titled, The Grit Guide for Teens.
