“How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character” – Cronica de carte

Amazing book! Everyone should read it no matter if you are a parent or not.

“Drop the flashcards—grit, character, and curiosity matter even more than cognitive skills. A persuasive wake-up call.”—People

Why do some children succeed while others fail? The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter more have to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, optimism, and self-control.

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.

  • Buna, Eu sunt Ana Maria Mitrus, sunt casatorita – cu Cristi, si sunt mama – de Alexandra si Andreea. Imi place sa petrec foarte mult timp cu familia mea si sa ma implic in tot ce inseamna cresterea si educatia fetitelor. Imi place sa cos si sa mesteresc, imi place sa citesc si sa aflu lucruri noi si interesante in orice domeniu. Imi plac oamenii care au ceva de spus si de la care pot sa invat ceva. Imi plac animalele, imi place sa merg cu rolele si imi place marea. Ma bucur de viata si sunt recunoscatoare pentru tot ce am.
