I have never really read anything on the subject Grit. I thought this book did a great job on ways to encourage our kids on how to have passion, morals and how to accomplish and learn skills and grow in maturity. I loved how short and easy this book was to read. If you are interested in this subject it is a great and easy read. I was given a free copy of this book for my honest review. I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

    Because I had written reviews of Grit: Passion, Perseverance, and the Science of Success and other some education related books Lee David Daniels sent me a review copy of his short book _Grit for Kids_. While the title would have caught my eye, I’m not sure that I would have stumbled upon it otherwise, and I’m glad that the author brought it to my attention.

While the title would have caught my eye, I’m not sure that I would have stumbled upon it otherwise, and I’m glad that the author brought it to my attention. While the book, by nature of its length, leaves out quite a bit about the concept and its application of Grit to parenting, it does provide a useful, actionable, introduction to concept. Grit for Kids is a short, application focused short book that can provide some needed guidance to parents who are struggling with how to help their kids follow through in the face of challenges, or just boredom. It says a minimal amount about the theory of “grit” and dives into scenarios and techniques you can use to encourage the right combination of endurance and passion with children in your care. The examples are realistic and address children of a variety of ages from later elementary to high school. The author captures the essential parts of grit, including the subtlety that gets lost in many interpretations which focus on "persistence" over all else. As Angela Duckworth describes the concept of “grit,” it also means understanding your limits. I would recommend reading _Grit_, but that is a larger time commitment, and this book might just fill a gap. It will give you ideas to get started, as it is easily readable during a couple of short waits. The book would be better if the author pointed to resources to go more deeply. And it is a bit simplistic, but if you are looking for a way to understand how to help your kids get on the road to being grittier, then this is worth a look if the price is right. But do follow up with the original book, or at least the TED talk.

    A great resource for parents I've read quite a few books on the subject of grit. This one does a great job of laying out guidelines for parents who want to encourage their kids to have passion for what they wish to accomplish and learn the skills necessary to execute their goals.

    Good book but great reference I wish I had this when my kids were growing up. It is a fine application of Duckworth 's "Grit" to parenting. It is built around specific stories and situations which is why I liken it an a reference book. Good book but great reference I wish I had this when my kids were growing up.

    Very great concepts in here. Did catch a few spelling errors such as words “you” that should have been “your.” Many real life examples of situations and conflict in children’s lives and how parents helped them get through it.

    Obvious I have read grit and mindset which his observations are based off of and don't think anything earth shattering was abstracted. If you need a book to summarize those two then this would be right for you Obvious I have read grit and mindset which his observations are based off of and don't think anything earth shattering was abstracted.

    Would've liked more on motivation and explanation on a kid's way of thinking. Kind of skimpy. Would've liked more on motivation and explanation on a kid's way of thinking. Kind of skimpy.

    Doesn’t really dig in deep but gave me some questions to guide great dialogue with my students. Superficial but a helpful guide.

    Waist of time The suggestions in this book are obvious. Not what I was looking for in a book on how to instill "grit" into my children. Waist of time The suggestions in this book are obvious. Not what I was looking for in a book on how to instill "grit" into my children.
