How can parents encourage their children to persevere? In a world where attention seems to be short and quitting can be pervasive, it can be challenging to get kids to stick with something until the end.  Dr. Robyn answers one parent’s question about how to get her children to show perseverance in this short video.

Dear Dr. Robyn,

I am looking for ways to teach my child that quitting is not an option.  It seems that when he tries something new, he doesn’t always see it through to the end.  He puts up a real fight when we tell him he shouldn’t quit.  I find myself apologizing or taking over if I can. Can you give me some advice? — Paula; St. Louis, MO
