life skills report: resilience
Resilience is the most significant predictor of a successful and happy life for your child.
This report will help you to teach your kids how to be RESILIENT.
We all want our kids to be successful at whatever they choose to do, but most of us are unsure how to go about ensuring this success. Better schools? Diverse interests? Or do we throw some more money at it? It doesn’t quite work this way. In fact, many adults who find that success eludes them had all these and more while growing up!
What then is the deciding factor? According to Professor Angela Duckworth the deciding factor is grit, and her bestselling book Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance is the inspiration for this LIFE SKILL REPORT.
Before you begin, it's worthwhile just seeing how resilient your child is.
We've created 2 quizzes, one for you to see how they measure up against 10 key elements of RESILIENCE.
And one for them that's a bit of fun and will get them thinking about what resilience is and how resilient they are in certain situations.
grit: all you need to know
If you would like some background info on RESILIENCE then we recommend that you read our summary of Angela Duckworth's bestselling book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance.
Duckworth talks about 4 key principles: interest, practice, purpose and hope. We give you lots of ideas how you can do the first 3 in our summary, while the rest of this report is all about the 4th.
