We all know the importance of both Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ).
Very simply put, the former makes sure we remain academically competitive as compared to our peers
while the latter helps us in making friends and keeping them too.

However, what some of us fail to realise is that a lot of the potential we have in terms of IQ and
EQ remains untapped without fortitude, optimism and belief in one’s actions and influence.
Such required resilience is gauged by a standard known as Adversity Quotient (AQ).

Based on years of scientific research, AQ has gradually become a requisite to add to IQ and EQ
in order for your little one to thrive in this increasingly competitive society.
More importantly, AQ is necessary to make sure your child has a healthy attitude to learning and
a mind-set equipped to at least attempt to achieve regardless of the odds.
