This review is from: How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character by Paul Tough (30 Minute Expert Summary) (Kindle Edition)
Success for adults often means very little time for extra activities. On the other hand, providing for the success of children requires the contribution of parents and educators who, by virtue of the demands of their own success, have very little time to offer.
Garamond's Concise Summary of Paul Tough's How Children Succeed . . . in 30 minutes is a quick guide allowing parents, teachers, and other concerned adults to quickly grasp concepts necessary to put children on a path to their own success.
This short book analyses social and psychological factors and offers insight into key elements that must be groomed into children to give them the skills and strengths to flourish as adults. It demystifies success by pointing out that academics and financial security are often less important than a positive outlook and persistence that can be encouraged in children regardless of social and economic factors.
In just a half hour you can learn how to promote a resistance to failure, positive character traits, thinking strategies, crucial noncognitive skills like work habits and problem solving, and what the larger society can do to better prepare children for success in the future. Pick it up!
