Failure is just one step on the path to success. 

Failure is not only a possibility for learners during these challenging times, but a productive, concrete way of gaining ground. How can parents and educators teach kids to turn failure into progress toward success? 
 
This revised edition of the beloved bestseller, Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight, has sensible answers, including both what to say and what not to say to truly help kids self-motivate and become independent, lifelong learners. Rich with fresh insights, this new edition offers a deeper understanding of how motivation works along with new, practical, research-driven strategies for spurring learners to thrive. It features:

  • The latest research on motivation theory, persistence, self-regulation, grit, and a growth mindset in learners.
  • An expanded focus on equity and culturally responsive approaches to ensure that all learners maximize their full potential.
  • A new chapter on giftedness, an updated discussion guide, videos available via QR codes, and a robust companion website. 

Kids are bound to stumble and fall, but by capitalizing on knowledge and the latest research on motivation, we can equip them to stand up and move forward, pointing them on the route to success.
