“Grit” Is a Good Gauge of your Child’s Future Success

- The new parenting buzzword is “grit.” Experts are saying that this is vital to a child’s success. They are using this word to portray determination, persistence, tenacity or stick-to-itiveness.

- According to Angela Duckworth, a psychology professor at the University of Pennsylvania credited for coining the term "grit", it is the ability of being able to sustain your passions, and also work really hard on them, over really disappointingly long periods of time. Duckworth's studies showed that tenacity is a better gauge of future success than test scores, IQ or good looks. Nowadays, many parents and kids are overscheduled, which is not the best way for concentration and persistence.
