Gritty Kitty

Find your inner strength with Gritty Kitty!

Resilience, or “grit,” is the ability to keep going through difficult situations, such as a playground fall, an uncomfortable feeling, or traumatic life event. For each, the ability to recover using inner strength and family support is a strong predictor of healthy development and success in school and life.
