12 Tips for Helping Your Child Build "Grit"

Building grit can help your child succeed at school--and in life! Grit means not giving up. We all face challenges in life, but when a person has grit, he or she keeps trying, is determined to be successful and is able to find ways to succeed.

1. Talk with your child regularly. Make it clear that grit is one of your family values.
2. Share examples from your life. Discuss ways you overcame challenges and setbacks through determination and hard work.
3. Point out examples from the past. Share stories with your child about other people who had grit. Read stories or watch movies about overcoming challenges.
4. Look for examples in the present. Point out stories in the news about people who overcame challenges.
5. Teach your child good habits. Talk about being responsible, accountable, and dependable.
6. Teach your child self-control. Set limits and rules for your child. Help your child learn about willpower.
7. Help your child set and work toward goals. Goals should be challenging but realistic. They should include short and long term goals.
8.Teach your child how to deal with failure. Express confidence in your child's ability to learn from the situation and do better next time.
9. Praise your child's efforts. Be sure to say how proud you are that your child gives his/her best efforts.
10. Talk to your child about balance. Encourage your child to work hard toward his/her goals but be sure to include downtime, too.
11. Provide opportunities for your child to build grit. Set expectations for your child, encourage participation in sports or after-school activities and hobbies.
12. Support school efforts. Attend parent-teacher conferences, volunteer, set high academic goals.

Show Your Child How Important Reading Is To Your Entire Family

Reading shouldn't always be a solo act! Involve your whole family in preparing your child to be a reader. To make language learning a family affair:

+ Share family history. Ask siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins to tell your child stories about your family's past.

+Create a reading nook. Set aside a comfy spot at home where everyone can plop down with a book. Have a family reading time a least one a week--everyone gets together and reads!

+ Read all day long. Look at street signs. While grocery shopping, ask your child to help you find specific products. Even if he can't read yet, he can look for the k in ketchup or the b in bread.

Question & Answer

Q: My four-year-old is already pointing out familiar words on cereal boxes. Will she be a little bored at school?

A: No--she'll be excited! Your child's school will likely have some books suitable for more advanced readers. The head start your child will have from early reading may give her so much confidence in herself that she'll be eager to read even more!
