Parenting Tip of the Month
Grit vs. Talent
Dr. Angela Duckworth has studied rookie teachers, West Point Cadets, spelling bee champions, salespeople, Ivy League college students, and school children. In all of them, Dr. Duckworth found that GRIT was the best predictor of success. Grit is defined as passion and perseverance for long-term goals. Dr. Duckworth's research proved that grit was a better predictor of success than talent, intelligence, or social status. In many cases, Duckworth found that success was unrelated to talent. Gritty kids are optimistic and understand that failure is temporary and may even be a necessary step to success.
