Perseverance and Grit
The wellbeing census has indicated that students in DAA need more opportunities to show perseverance. Can you think of a way to encourage your children to keep at it?
Grit and perseverance are what keeps us trying to meet long-term goals. In many cases, intelligence isn't enough to be successful. Grit is the extra ingredient which helps us reach our goals. It means being able to re-start after experiencing failure. Similar in many ways to resilience, grit is what helps us to try again after not achieving a goal and staying motivated.
