Delayed gratification linked to success in life

December 4, 2009

As a mother of five, fostering my children’s self-discipline is high on the priority list. Today, I came across a clip, which cites scientific evidence for something most parents know intuitively – self-discipline at a young age is a crucial predictor of success and happiness in adulthood.

To me, making a four-year-old wait 15 minutes in an empty room sounds more like torture than discipline training, but I am going to add the idea of get this now or more/better later to my parenting repertoire.
