"How can I help my child succeed?" For many parents, that urgent plea is answered mainly in terms of preparations for SATs and other tests. All too few of them focus on the childhood stress and adversity that scientists now know have longtime, even lifelong debilitating effects on its victims. This new book by New York Times Magazine journalist Paul Tough goes beyond truisms about homework and class participation to reveal the real reasons why children succeed. Drawing on research and extensive interviews with educators, he describes how strength of character can enable even embattled kids to grow into mature, successful adults. Now in traded paperback and NOOK Book.
