Books and Tips that Promote Life Skills (Mind in the Making, MITM)
Mind in the Making (MITM), developed by Families and Work Institute (FWI), is an unprecedented effort to share the science of children’s learning with the general public, families and professionals who work with them. Based on Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Life Skills Every Child Needs (HarperCollins, 2010) by Ellen Galinsky, president of FWI, its mission is to promote Executive Function Life Skills in adults and through them in children in order to keep the fire for learning burning brightly in all of us. The reading lists are grouped by Life Skill with links to download the corresponding tip sheets for each title. Many of the tip sheets are available in Spanish.
