Strengthening Your Child's Resilience by Cindy Dickinson, M.Ed.
We all know those wonderfully resilient adults and children. They seem to get through even life’s biggest trials and challenges with relative ease. They bounce back in the face of misfortune and change. They march through hard, scary times and come out stronger and better.
It’s good to know that we can all develop more resilience, and that you can help your child do the same.
There are three key things to remember as you explore this subject:
1. There is a difference between surviving and thriving. (We all want our children to thrive.)
