What this book teaches-Work Ethic

My review of the book:

I recommend this story should be in all homes. It is about goal setting and work habits. I know that there are two different theories out there – that you are either born as a motivated person who works, or the other theory is that you learn to have good work habits. I am more on the end that it is a learned character trait. It is something that you pick up from your parents, from modeling. It is something that you pick up from being given the opportunity to have responsibilities at a young age, and to learn work habits. So for families who don’t know the importance of teaching your children certain habits and skills, I think this is a great book to start with and use in your home as a guide for the 7 important habits that you should be teaching your children.
