  1.  A book which can make the world a better place !!! 20 February, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Even as I was reading “How Children Succeed” I was wondering if this is not really the most important book in the world.
    Based upon scientific research the book gives clear guidelines on how we can make every child a worthy citizen of the world. Isn’t this the greatest thing that could happen to mankind?
    The gist of the book concludes that rather than academics, if parents and schools were to focus on developing the character in a child, the child will be successful in life.
    In other words, though we think that academic excellence leads to holistic success, actually it is character which leads to both.
    When two things happen together we usually think that one is the cause of the other, but it might be that both are the effect of a yet unknown cause (in this case character).
    Character attributes to be inculcated from childhood are – self control, managing emotions, ability to delay gratification, curiosity, conscientiousness, grit (determination to succeed despite failures)

    Character is malleable. If we teach children to pay attention to character, their character will improve. It’s not that some children are good and some are bad. Some children have good habits and some have bad habits.

    The book talks about an almost one-on-one relationship between stress caused by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) and negative adult outcomes. Stress could be because of family turmoil, low level of maternal attachment, high level of parental criticism, isolation from parents – both physical and emotional.
    Stress causes damage to a child’s development because the human body is in a perpetual state of high alert leading to wear and tear of internal organs.

    On a positive note, high quality mothering can counter the effect of unavoidable stress. Hearteningly, it has been scientifically proven that a spontaneous motherly cuddle can actually eliminate the damaging effects of stress.
    The book has many more valuable insights and I recommend it to everyone. The importance of the book is not just for parents. It is for the entire adult community who can use this knowledge to build a better society.
