How is grit developed and socialized? This study aims to focus on the socialization of grit, investigating the mediating effects of parental academic expectation (support and pressure), and university students’ tolerance of academic failure on the relationship between parents’ “failure-is-enhancing” mindset and students’ grit. Data were collected from 412 university students and analysis was performed using PROCESS macro software. Results showed that the “failure-is-enhancing” mindset of parents had a positive effect on students’ grit development. It also demonstrated that the mediating and double mediating effects through parental academic support and students’ tolerance of failure were significant. Although the mediating effects through parental pressure were insignificant, the double mediating effects of parental pressure and failure tolerance were significant. The implications and limitations of this study are discussed.
