At Issue: The Latest Parenting Trend

There’s a new parenting buzzword, The Globe and Mail announces.  It’s “resilience.”

How%20Children%20Succeed%20by%20Paul%20ToughWallpapering 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.
