In 2001, psychologists Drs. Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein transformed the mindsets of parents and professionals with their innovative and ground-breaking book, Raising Resilient Children. With the publication of their fourteenth co-authored book, Tenacity in Children: Nurturing the Seven Instincts for Lifetime Success, Goldstein and Brooks are poised once again to transform mindsets as we prepare children to transition into adult life. In this new work they introduce the ground-breaking concept of tenacity, building upon their previous work in defining the essential triad of human development: resilience, self-discipline, and tenacity.

About The Book

Tenacity in Children examines how multiple generations of parents and extended family have raised children to become successful adults addressing the foundational question: How did they do it?

Until relatively recent times in human history, there were no schools or organized institutions, nor were parenting books available. Rather, children were raised by parents and other adults who drew on the seven important instincts that evolved across tens of thousands of years in the human species. This volume highlights the ways in which these instincts are more important than ever in preparing children for tomorrow’s successes.
