GCSE in grit

I was listening to a programme on Radio 2 yesterday that was discussing whether or not we should have a GCSE on resilience for kids.

The suggestion and discussion was around how you should teach it in schools.

I listened open mouthed.

Since when did resilience become a thing we learn from books?

Even worse that we feel society is that broken that we shouldn’t just teach it but we should test it too.

Then again, the timing of this programme is good because I am just about to publish an online course which is to help parents understand what they can do to bring up resilient kids.

It’s something a lot of us worry about

Is what I am doing as a parent screwing up my kids?


The course covers:

  1. The way we build (and can break) the connection between moments and events and what they mean to love
  2. How to deal with your kids when they are scared of stuff
  3. A simple technique to change behaviours without losing our temper
  4. How to teach your kids that we are all unique and how to deal with their own problems
“How to avoid screwing up your kids” Course

The course will be available on www.udemy.com and I will share the link with you once it’s available.
