There’s a new parenting buzzword, The Globe and Mail announces. It’s “resilience.”
Wallpapering my local bookstores are two new books on the topic: Paul Tough’s How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character and Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman’s new book Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing. (My discussion of their chapter on sleep from their Nurtureshock is here.) Have you read either of them?
This week, 4 Mothers will discuss our approach to resilience and to parenting trends in general.
