A fun and engaging workbook to help kids build resilience, perseverance, and a growth mindset.

As a parent, you want to give your child a solid foundation for living a happy, successful life. But if you have a child who is easily sidelined by obstacles, has trouble bouncing back from setbacks, who melts down easily, or gives up quickly when things get tough – you may worry about their ability to succeed in our competitive, high-pressure world. So, how can you help your child develop grit – a trait that embodies tenacity and self-control?

Fortunately, grit can be learned. Written in a kid-friendly tone and grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), The Grit Workbook for Kids offers a unique approach for learning and practicing the tools, strategies, and skills that make up grit. These activities will help your child:

  • Build stamina
  • Keep perspective
  • Be optimistic
  • Solve problems
  • Cope with change
  • Practice mental flexibility
  • Stick up for themselves
  • Build good relationships
  • And much, much more!

Grit is key to helping kids succeed in what they want or need to do—whether that’s getting good grades, making the sports team, or just building an awesome treehouse. By practicing the skills and activities outlined in this accessible workbook—whether on their own or with you—your child will gain powerful tools to help them thrive, well into adulthood.
