Making Extra Effort

Carlo Cockroach and the Piano – Making Extra Effort (Book)


Carlo Cockroach loves to play the piano.

He’s a very good pianist because he’s always thinking of ways to improve, and trying them out.

There are many times when Carlo made an extra effort, and he was so happy that he did. It also made a big difference in the lives of others.

About the Skill

Making Extra Effort

Effortful behaviour plays an important role in helping children understand the link between their behaviour, and achieving desired outcomes. For example, children that engage in sustained effort are more likely to excel, by comparison, with naturally gifted children that do not apply themselves. Encouraging effortful behaviours helps children develop a sense of self-mastery over challenging tasks, which in turn improves confidence and mood, and developing a more optimistic outlook when faced with challenges.
