Welcome to Grit Moms!

A space to discuss and practice grit qualities among ourselves and our children

Grit \’grit\: Firmness of mind and spirit; unyielding courage in face of hardship; perseverance and passion to achieve long-term goals.


Who are Grit Moms?

I am a Grit Mom and I know you are too! Grit moms are parents who want to create an environment for their kids where grit qualities such as perseverance and resilience can be cultivated and sustained.  Gritmoms.com began as an online platform and community for parents to talk about ways they promote grit characteristics within our children.  There is no silver bullet answer nor is there a one-size fits all approach. Grit talent takes time and patience to develop. It requires continuous effort on both the children and the parents. Click on the main project links to see what interests you.  They are:

Our Latest Project: Grit Academy Tutors

It has been a challenging time for many of us.  The school environment has changed due to COVID with children learning at home, online and/or in a hybrid model.  We have compiled a database of Grit moms who are current and former teachers available to tutor students online or in a socially distanced and safe way.  Please contact us to discuss your tutoring needs so we can properly match you with the tutoring support you need at kimboyer10@comcast.net

Creative Grit

What do you do with your child’s stacks of hard earned school work? Can’t bring yourself to toss it?  Keep their hard earned work and repurpose it into a Grit Book or custom stationary. Grit books and stationary are unique, one of a kind and remind kids of the work they accomplished. Contact us and follow an easy step-by-step process to order at kimboyer10@comcast.net

Start a hangout group

Learn how to convene a group of moms in a book club-style gathering while discussing grit.  I provide you with a guidebook containing discussion questions on literature like Paul Tough’s How Children Succeed,  fun activities that teach grit, and lists of children’s books with grit themes.  All of the books lists and group ideas are meant to help cultivate grit qualities among your children and yourselves!
