life skills report: resilience

Do you know what the most significant predictor of a successful and happy life for your child is?

Clue: it's not qualifications, their IQ, or natural talent. 

Nor is it their looks or their luck. It’s not even the school you send them to or the connections they make. 

Instead, it’s plain old grit, or as we like to call it: resilience.

This report will help you 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 theme for this LIFE SKILL REPORT.
