And she’s the author of the New York Times bestselling book “The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed.” Reading from her website about the book it says, “In the tradition of Paul Tough’s book How Children Succeed and Wendy Mogel’s The Blessing of a Skinned Knee, this groundbreaking manifesto focuses on the critical school years when parents must learn to allow their children to experience the disappointment and frustration that occur from life’s inevitable problems so that they can grow up to be successful, resilient, and self-reliant adults.”

We all want those things for our children. And the more you teach something, the better you become at it so you just may become more successful, resilient and self-reliant yourself.
