All month long, our outstanding Powerful Words Member Schools will be talking with their students about the powerful word, diligence! How do you teach your children to carry out their tasks with great care and consistent effort until that task is completed? At a time when so many multi-task and desire to get as much done as quickly as possible, does diligence suffer? What do YOU think?
