Teaching your Kids Self-Reliance, Grit, and Hard Work

Self-reliance means taking matters into your own hand instead of sitting around waiting for others to do things for you. Grit is having the passion to accomplish something combined with the perseverance to get it done. And hard work simply means working hard at something instead of doing it half-heartedly. And all of these character traits lead to having the determination to get things done. Without them, it's difficult to be successful at anything. And this course will help you build those character traits in your kids.

It's another course from bestselling author Paul Smith drawn from interviews he conducted with hundreds of insightful people in 25 countries around the world as they discuss their most poignant life lessons.
