PTO Parent Education presents: Amy Lyon, Bit of Grit
When children who have been protected all their lives come face to face with difficulty, challenge, or hardship, they may be ill-equipped to deal with hard situations, and less likely to see their way through them.
Optimism, resilience and goal-setting are all key components to grit, and if children are presented with tools for promoting these skills, it they’ll be able to achieve whatever they set out to do. Nurturing these kinds of qualities at home gives kids an even better chance of later becoming people who can set realistic goals and work hard to attain them.
Amy Lyon lives in Wilmot, NH. She has been an elementary teacher for nearly thirty years. Meet Amy Lyon
