Bainum Family Foundation Supports
Powerful New Book: Helping Children Succeed

Paul Tough’s 2013 best-selling book, How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, was a thought-provoking examination of why some children succeed while others fail. Now he’s back with a powerful new book, Helping Children Succeed: What Works and Why, that explains what we can do — in the home and at school — to improve the lives of children growing up in adversity.

Helping Children Succeed

The Bainum Family Foundation is proud to be a funder of Helping Children Succeed. We support Paul because his work reflects our own commitment to helping children thrive; ensuring that health, education and human services systems work together for the good of children and families; and making policy and practice decisions based on sound child development science.

We invite you to explore this important new book and gain useful ideas for how best to help children do better.
