Think you know what kids need to SUCCEED? In some cases, there's a child where an sdult should be. We speak in terms of 'raising children,' but the thought we need to keep 'front and center' is that we're raising future adults. We interviewed numerous successful adults in search of common themes. We studied their life stories and compared them to biographies of other well-known high-achievers. A pattern emerged. Successful adults share a common background, something we call the Four Foundations of Adult Achievement. In the parenting book, What Kids Need to Succeed, these principles are illustrated through inspiring stories that help parents think about ways to prepare their own children for a bright future. When you lay the groundwork for these foundations, your children start to develop attitudes and habits shared by successful adults. Andrea Patten will be with us speaking about the Four Foundations to help with your child success... 1.Refuse to Fail 2.Work Hard 3.Develop Discipline 4.Give Back There's a lot of parenting help and advice available. And it's loaded with contradictions. Some of that parenting advice can backfire and you won't know it until it's too late. We'll show you how to avoid the "deadly sins" of parenting: 1.Treating your child as an equal 2.Overindulging - especially the "wants" 3.Forgetting to teach them about consequences, or 4.Simply not taking action when you should Andrea's approach has been called the perfect balance between 'no nonsense' and 'unwavering optimism'.
