How Children Succeed introduced readers to an exciting new body of research showing that the traditional way we measure children?s abilities ? through standardized tests of their cognitive skills ? was missing a crucial dimension: the importance of so-called non-cognitive skills or character strengths, qualities like grit, curiosity, conscientiousness, self-control, and optimism. Helping Children Succeed expands on that research, takes it in some new directions, and distills it into strategies to more effectively help children who grow up in adversity.
