Helping Children Succeed Book Description :
From the New York Times best-selling author of How Children Succeed, an essential handbook of “informative and effective methods to help children overcome issues and thrive at home and in school”*—now including sixteen new infographics! In How Children Succeed, Paul Tough introduced us to research showing that personal qualities like perseverance, self-control, and conscientiousness play a critical role in children’s success. Now, in Helping Children Succeed, Tough takes on a new set of pressing questions: What does growing up in poverty do to children’s mental and physical development? How does adversity at home affect their success in the classroom, from preschool to high school? And what practical steps can the adults who are responsible for them take to improve their chances for a positive future? Tough once again encourages us to think in a new way about the challenges of childhood. Mining the latest research in psychology and neuroscience, he provides us with insights and strategies for a new approach to childhood adversity, one designed to help many more children succeed. * (Kirkus Reviews)

“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.
“Illuminates the extremes of American childhood: for rich kids, a safety net drawn so tight it’s a harness; for poor kids, almost nothing to break their fall.”—New York Times
“I learned so much reading this book and I came away full of hope about how we can make life better for all kinds of kids.”—Slate

Excellent5As a teacher and parent this book was extremely resourceful. I”ll think differently toward each struggling student of mine. Fascinating book that left me in tears by the end!
Children? Heck, How We Can All Succeed.By suziesdadCovers the soft skills in a way that no other book of its genre ever has and also offers hope in that it”s not too late to learn those skills. It will be interesting to see if this spawns additional research and action to further help kids (and parents) develop the soft skills they need to survive and thrive.
Fantastic book a must read for everyoneBy Magic AcesEveryone must read this book, watch Waiting for Superman and go fight for our future and our kids! It”s time.
How Under-Privileged Children SucceedBy Bmac1020If you are a middle-classed parent looking for some insight into how you can better position your children for success, this is NOT the book for you. The author offers up some DEEP insight into the fact that under-privileged youths without a strong family unit have a very difficult task ahead of them if they hope to be successful adults. The author presents some interesting children who were able to rise above their circumstances, and not only become successful adults, but become a great role model for other under-privileged youths. Their stories are inspiring, but they provide little insight into how a responsible family can help their children succeed.
Why Children FailBy Awb1961The title is misleading. It spends way more time on why students fail, but the worst part is the author”s final conclusion: we need better government programs.
Amazing workBy EMoney975As an engineering manager and father of three children, I found this book to be fascinating. The amount of research based facts and case studies in this book blew me away. I bought the book because it was a top seller and looked intriguing, but what I found was a gem.I have been obsessed with the psychology of motivation for years now. As a manager, I”ve experienced people that are intrinsically motivated and perform consistently well and others that have to be intelligent, but either lack the discipline or grit to succeed, which makes them seem (as some of their coworkers would say) at times lazy and worthless.What this book really does is begin to connect the dots for me in a new way. As I mentioned above, managing, coaching and mentoring 25-35 year olds can be rewarding and challenging. But for me, some of the challenging people I faced where enigmas. I couldn”t figure them out. After knowing many of them personally, and the reading this book, I”ve begun to see why they turned out the way they did. This will help me immensely raise my three young kids. This also installs in me a passion to go out and make a difference in the lives of young people everywhere. I”m not a teacher, but I am a community volunteer and this inspired me more! I highly recommend this book for anyone, no matter your background. Even for single people with no kids, it will be very informative and helpful to understand some of the adversity that is faced by children nowadays.
