Why Tenacity Matters in Raising Successful Kids

ParentMap Live Replay

Tenacity is more important than ever in preparing kids for the future and setting them up for lifelong happiness and success. According to Sam Goldstein, Ph.D., and Robert B. Brooks, Ph.D., the co-authors of “Tenacity in Children: Nurturing the Seven Instincts for Lifetime Success,” there are seven essential human instincts powering tenacity that have evolved over thousands of years and are innate at birth.

In this illuminating ParentMap Live talk, learn how to identify and cultivate those seven instincts in kids, what tenacity means and why it’s important. Goldstein and Brooks will challenge you to rethink how you parent, socialize and educate your kids so that they can successfully transition into adult life.
