In 2001, psychologists Drs. Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein transformed the mindsets of parents and professionals with their innovative book, Raising Resilient Children. With the publication of their fourteenth co-authored book, Tenacity in Children: Nurturing the Seven Instincts for Lifetime Success, Goldstein and Brooks are poised, once again, to transform mindsets as they offer unique guidance and insights into preparing children to transition successfully into adult life. This new book introduces the groundbreaking concept of tenacity, building on their previous work in defining the essential triad of human development: resilience, self-discipline, and tenacity.
Tenacity in Children examines how multiple generations of parents, extended family, and community members have raised and prepared children to become successful adults, to acquire knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges of their time. The book addresses the foundational question: How did they do it? Until relatively recent times in human history, there were no schools or organized institutions, nor were there self-help gurus or parenting books. Rather, children were raised by parents and other adults who drew on seven important instincts that evolved across tens of thousands of years in the human species. This volume details the ways in which these instincts are more important than ever in preparing children for tomorrow's successes, highlights each of the seven, and describes the ways in which they intertwine.
Key areas of coverage include:
Individual chapters devoted to examining each of the seven instincts-intuitive optimism, intrinsic motivation, compassionate empathy, simultaneous intelligence, genuine altruism, virtuous responsibility, and measured fairness-that help children develop a solid foundation for lifelong success and happiness.Practical strategies for parents, caregivers, educators, coaches, mentors, and mental health and health-care professionals to guide children in acquiring and fine-tuning these essential human instincts.A roadmap to enrich the future of development of all children and the world in which they live.Tenacity in Children provides a solid emotional and cognitive foundation for parents and other adults to prepare the next generations for a resilient and happy future. It offers well-defined guideposts for those adults committed to providing every child with the opportunity to access, strengthen, and employ these instincts as they negotiate childhood and passage into adult life. The book also serves as a rich resource for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in mental health and public health disciplines as well as many interrelated fields as they strive to promote the well-being of children.
