Attitude over aptitude. Effort over achievement. Character over talent.

Effort over achievement. Character over talent. In this groundbreaking book, Laura and Malcolm Gauld draw on their experience as parents and as educators at Hyde -- an organization of award-winning schools and programs -- to argue persuasively that true education springs not just from seeking good grades and achievements but from reestablishing a commitment to character, attitude, and purpose. Offering a new paradigm for reconnecting education with values, the Gaulds focus attention not on the child, but on the child's primary teacher -- the parent. After explaining how enormous a parent's impact is on how children approach education and life, the Gaulds detail the Hyde program's 10 Priorities for meeting life's challenges so that any family can embrace them. Interspersed throughout are dozens of remarkable stories of Hyde parents and students; their funny, moving, and provocative anecdotes reveal that astonishing results are possible and that all children -- and their parents -- can exceed expectations and realize their full potential.

    I read this book twice. The authors do a wonderful job laying out things I have always felt strongly about in a very logical and interesting way. As a teacher I see the results of all kinds of parenting styles and my most well adjusted and successful students almost universally have parents who follow these principles. I wish all parents would read this book!

    This book was suggested by our middle school parent book. I didn't get through it but liked what i read. I will pick it up again another time - too many good fiction books calling my name.
