Fall into Focus: The Mind in the Making Vook

The first official week of Fall is drawing to a close, and that means it’s time to buckle down and get back to work. But as we all know, the transition from BBQs to business meetings can be a tough one. Of course, for children who have had the whole summer off, the change is even more dramatic.

It’s no surprise that this week, people from all walks of life have been commending the value of Ellen Galinsky’s Mind in the Making Vook.

Doctors, teachers, everyday parents and everyday people are recognizing the importance of skills such as focus and resilience. Drawing from Galinksy’s insight in this Vook, people of any age can learn to apply concentration and determination.

Read up on Galinsky’s research, then watch videos of some of the country’s greatest child development experts as they conduct their experiments in Mind in the Making: The Essential Skills That Every Child Needs.

Or test your skills now. All you need is a marshmallow and a stopwatch, as demonstrated in the video below.
