In the Learning Habit Study, we examined Grit and Focus Problems. Grit may be described as a child’s ability to persist through challenges in pursuit of a goal. Grit is a character trait involving self-motivation, determination, and tenacity Focus Problems examined attention, impulsiveness, and the ability of the child to stay on task. We only examined Focus Problem for primary and middle school youth but across both grade levels, as Grit increases Focus Problems decrease. This suggests that as children learn or adopt more Grit traits, they are more likely to have a healthy level of focus, which can contribute to positive behaviors and learning success.
