At Spartan, a threat is just an obstacle that gives rise to greatness. Take the harder route and eventually you come out on top. Make it easy on yourself and you start to drown. Right now, parents are drowning. The pacifying, pandering, and policing of children has left many moms and dads desperate for better strategies. The result? A cohort of kids unprepared for the trials of life. It’s a BIG problem.


If we want to shift course, we have to choose different methods. We have to choose what’s hard. We have to choose resilience.

At Spartan, we build better humans — and this time we’re tackling families. Joe De Sena’s newest book, 10 Rules for Resilience: Mental Toughness for Families, is a guidebook for becoming more resilient, so that you can raise more resilient kids. Built from life but backed by clinical experience, Joe and his co-author, Dr. Lara Pence, team up to provide a framework that will help you grow into the best version of yourself and develop the skills needed to parent with resilience as your compass. It’s a no-B.S. guide that will leave you feeling more confident, capable, and courageous in the most important job of your life: being a parent.
