It’s tricky trying to raise well-rounded young athletes in the age of hypermonetized competitive youth sports, year-round traveling teams, and overzealous parents screaming on the sidelines. But Norwich, Vermont, a rural town of 3,000, seems to have it figured out... explore how this tight-knit community has “opted out of the academic and athletic arms race” with a balanced, collaborative approach to sports—and produced 11 Olympic athletes and three Olympic medals.
"Making it to the Olympics is seen not as the pinnacle of an athlete’s career but as a fun stop on the way to achieving other, longer-lasting dreams. Norwich, Crouse realized, wasn’t just raising better athletes than the rest of America; it was raising happier, healthier kids.
This book is pivotal for every parent who wants to raise kids to be levelheaded, fulfilled, and successful." -Amazon

"...At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives." See how this approach can impact your recovery.
