The difference between those who struggle and those who succeed comes down not to grades or test scores, but to seven character traits -- confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism. These traits will allow kids to roll with the punches and succeed in life and they can be taught to children at any age. In Thrivers, Dr. Borba offers practical, actionable ways to develop these traits in children from preschool through high school, showing how to teach kids how to cope today so they can thrive tomorrow. -- adapted from inside front jacket flap.
