Parenters Presents: Cultivating Grit at Home @ Laura's
Grit is known as more important to success and happiness then talent or IQ alone. Yet, how can we as parents, caregivers and adults in children's lives tap into supporting the development of this essential attribute? By delving into mindsets, vulnerability and the micro-opportunities that our children (and we) present on a daily basis for growth.
This 90-minute workshop will offer the why's, how's, and now's of cultivating grit.
We will explore:
- How mindsets are the gateway to learning
- Why vulnerability is the key to happiness
- The micro-opportunities that can develop willingness, flexibly and persistence in an individual
