On January’s episode of PrepTalks, Ned talks with Michele Borba, expert parenting consultant and the author of 25 books, most recently, Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine (coming out in paperback in March). They dive into Michele’s research into the seven traits — confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism — that allow kids to roll with the punches, navigate our challenging times, and succeed in life. They also discuss the important point that these traits can be taught to children and young adults, and indeed, that it’s essential that parents and educators do teach these skills.
