Reviewing gobs of research and best practices, the study authors found that, beyond giving children knowledge and skills, we also need to build other "foundational components" of their development, including mindset, self-regulation and values.
These components underly three key factors to success:
"Having the Agency to make active choices about one's life path, possessing the
to adapt to the demands of different contexts, and incorporating
different aspects of oneself into an Integrated Identity."
They then map out how these components and key factors impact the young person's development and relationship to self, others and the world at 5 different stages, from early childhood (ages 3-5) to young adulthood (ages 19-22).
