 When the going gets tough, it’s time to get gritty. Written by a clinical-child and school psychologist and based in the latest research, The Grit Guide for Teens will help you build perseverance, resilience, self-control, and stamina.

 Setting and reaching goals is an important part of growing up. Whether an individual wants to do well in school, get into a good college, make friends, excel in sports, or master the fine arts or music—they need to persevere in order to succeed.

“Grit,” a term made popular by Angela Duckworth in her New York Times bestseller embodies all the characteristics that help people accomplish the things they want, such as self-control, tenacity, and the ability to fail well. Using the skills outlined in this book, teens will develop both grit and a growth mind-set—a way of thinking that focuses on improvement and hard work in order to achieve any goal they set. Teens will learn how to make grit an everyday habit, turn disappointments into opportunities, embrace challenges, manage stress, and be the very best version of themselves.

 Studies show that grit isn’t something you have to be born with—it can be taught and learned! This book will give teens everything needed to get gritty, open their minds to all life’s possibilities, and succeed in everything they do.
