The bestselling author of UnSelfie explains why the old markers of accomplishment (grades, test scores) are no longer reliable predictors of success in the 21st century - and offers 7 teachable traits that will safeguard our kids for the future. Michele Borba has been a teacher, educational consultant, and parent for 40 years - and she s never been more worried than she is about this current generation of kids. The high-achieving students she talks with every day are more accomplished, better educated, and more privileged than ever before. They re also more stressed, unhappier, and struggling with anxiety, depression, and burnout at younger and younger ages - we re like pretty packages with nothing inside, said one young teen. Thrivers are different: they flourish in our fast-paced, digital-driven, often uncertain world. Why? Dr. Borba interviewed more than 100 young people from all walks of life, and she found something surprising: the difference between those who struggle and those who succeed comes down not to grades or test scores, but to seven character traits that set Thrivers apart (and set them up for happiness and greater accomplishment later in life). These traits - confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism - will allow kids to roll with the punches and succeed in life. And the even better news: these traits can be taught to children at any age... in fact, parents and educations must do so. 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.
