The Grit Workbook for Kids
Grit is key to helping youth succeed in what they want or need to do. Although this is essential to succeed in the world, some children may not naturally have this trait. Luckily, The Grit Workbook for Kids offers children ages 6-12 a unique approach to building resilience, perseverance, and a growth mindset. Written in a kid-friendly tone and grounded in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), this guide offers a unique approach to learning and practicing the tools, strategies, and skills that make up grit.
These activities will help children:
- Build good relationships and keep perspective
- Be optimistic and solve problems
- Cope with change
- Practice mental flexibility
- And much, much more!
