Not all books are worth reading, and I certainly could not agree with everything in "The Coddling of the American Mind". But I did like very much the advice the author gives for lessons we might teach our children about how to be happy and successful as adults.
The author includes 3 ideas to be "happier, healthier, stronger, and more likely to succeed in pursuing your own goals."
Our jobs as teachers will be much easier if parents partner with us in encouraging these principles.
