Do you want your kid to be a successful and independent adult? Of course! But you only get one chance to raise your child. In Your Kid's Too Soft, high school teacher and coach Tim Smiley charts a pathway for all parents and students to succeed in the public school environment. The key is to set the tone early and then continually help kids learn to challenge themselves.
A multitude of unique student examples from Tim's own classroom-both successes and failures-illustrate the need to coordinate all efforts of parents, students, and the educational system itself to maximize student mental 'toughness.' In the end, the student's resiliency will determine their futures. Learn to expect success from your sons and daughters, and you'll never have to hear those fatal words: Your Kid's Too Soft. Your Kid's Too Soft can help you in developing the toughness necessary for your child to overcome the obstacles in athletics and life. -Don Meyer, Men's college basketball all-time wins leader and the recipient of the Jimmy V.
