How Children Succeed
By: Paul Tough
Overview: How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators, who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories—and the stories of the children they are trying to help—Tough reveals how this new knowledge can transform young people’s lives. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do—and do not—prepare their children for adulthood. And he provides us with new insights into how to improve the lives of children growing up in poverty. This provocative and profoundly hopeful book will not only inspire and engage readers, it will also change our understanding of childhood itself.
Testimonial: How Children Succeed looks at the early development of a child. Paul Tough explores grit and resilience. This really speaks to Lonehollow's core values of GEAR - growth, empowerment, adventure and resilience.
