Grit and Resilience in Babies

The 74 recently published an article titled “What You Never Realized You Were Teaching Your Child About Grit & Resilience: MIT Study Captures Techniques That Work for Babies as Young as 13 Months”. The article, written by Kate Stringer talks about the results of a recent study by MIT Graduate Student-Julia Leonard. Ms. Leonard was interested in studying how babies learn skills like grit and growth mindset from adults, especially as schools are placing more emphasis on developing student character and social-emotional competencies.

Of course GROWING SOUND knows the value of this research and has applied it to many of our projects for infants, toddlers and beyond confirming, once again, the power of music to early learning.
