You’ll Know In Kindergarten – The Connection Between Success in Kindergarten and Success in Life

Every parent hopes their kids will grow up and be successful adults. What if you could tell early on if they had a good chance to do that or not? Well, a 30 year study from Penn State says you may. It’s tracked over 700 people since the age of five and it’s found some interesting things. We talk with an author of the study, Dr. Mark Greenberg, this week and he says there is a connection between how well a kindergartner gets along with others and their ability to succeed later in life. It’s an eye opening episode that every parent should hear.

About the author, James

Thank you for joining me for the Positively Dad journey! My name is James Shaw and I'm a husband and father. I live in the Tampa Bay area with my wife, Terri and our young daughter, Naomi. The goal with Positively Dad for us to think, learn and grow. It's easy to get caught up in the day to day and miss opportunities to become amazing fathers. I trust that the conversations we have on Positively Dad will help you see that fatherhood is truly a journey and that we are better together than figuring it all out on our own.
