November 1, 2017
Welcome, this week new research shows that perseverance pays off even for babies, and a reminder about Movember and how you can get involved.
Teach your baby how to succeed by really trying
There's nothing like a good work ethic to propel you forward in life and according to a study by the world renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), even babies can be taught that hard work pays off.

Researchers found that tots as young as 15 months can learn the value of effort by watching adults struggle with tasks and then succeed.

For this study, researchers enlisted the help of a group of babies. Half of the bubs watched as an adult struggled to remove a toy from a container and take off a key chain, before finally succeeding. In comparison, the other half witnessed a grown-up easily completing those tasks.
