Character traits like self-control, delayed gratification, and gratitude can be hard to find in our children today. Incorporating Tough's ideas in our homes and our educational system, may be the key to success, not only for our children but for our country and the world.
This wonderful book summarizes Paul Tough's research in a quick easy-to-read guide. Each chapter includes examples from his book and a section demonstrating how to apply the concepts. And the book includes a list of key terms and recommended reading. A must read for parents, educators, and anyone who regularly works with children. I plan to recommend this guide to educators in my community.
These day's people talk about motivating their children and their rewarded even when they "fail". Children these days don't know what its like to fail. If the kids never learn to fail they will never learn to try harder or work for what they want. Within society a significant amount of children are shown that they only need an education and a degree to succeed when in reality you need to have the dedication and drive to work hard.
The studies discussed in the summary show that some people who receive a GED as opposed to a four-year high school diploma sometimes score higher since they are more motivated to perform well on that one test.
It is something I recommend all new parents read so they can shape their kids into hardworking children who appreciate hard work and the rewards it reaps.
This companion guide does an excellent job of providing easy to follow summaries of Tough's conclusions, as well as presenting individual case studies that were used for his research. There is also a recommended reading section with short summaries of several additional sources and a bibliography, in case you want to learn more about the importance of character in childhood development. I definitely recommend for both parents and teachers to add this book to their library.
