Helping Children Succeed - Reading Together - Adversity and Strategies


"I aim here to follow a different strategy: to consider the developmental journey of children, and particularly children growing up in circumstances of adversity, as a continuum— a single unbroken story from birth through the end of high school."
(page 8, Kindle Edition)

Helping Children Succeed - Reading Together


Welcome to the newest Reading Together series. I'll be posting a summary about our reading each week on Tuesdays. Come join us!

We'll be reading Helping Children Succeed by Paul Tough. You can get a copy from your local library, or pick up a copy from Amazon.

The chapters are rather shorts, so we'll be reading two chapters per week.
I'll post about the first installment on Tuesday, January 17. That means you have two weeks to get a copy of the book and to read the first two chapters.

The great thing about this program is that it allows us to read works together that can help us in our professional development as well as providing a level of accountability and the added interest of comparing notes as we read together.

Reading Together - How Children Succeed - A Better Path


"But these scientists have demonstrated that the most reliable way to produce an adult who is brave and curious and kind and prudent is to ensure that when he is an infant, his hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis functions well. And how do you do that? It is not magic. First, as much as possible, you protect him from serious trauma and chronic stress; then, even more important, you provide him with a secure, nurturing relationship with at least one parent and ideally two. That’s not the whole secret of success, but it is a big, big part of it." (page 182, Kindle Edition)

"As she saw it, her job was not to prevent them from failing; it was to teach them how to learn from each failure, how to stare at their failures with unblinking honesty, how to confront exactly why they had messed up. If they could do that, she believed, they would do better next time." (page 183, Kindle Edition)
