Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine

Michele Borba, an educational psychologist and the bestselling author of UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World, has 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 than ever before, but they're struggling with anxiety, depression, and burnout at younger and younger ages.

Thrivers are different: they flourish in our fast-paced, digital-driven, often uncertain world. Why? Dr. Borba combed scientific studies on resilience, spoke to dozens of researchers/experts in the field and 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 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.
