Helping children develop resilience at an early age should be a priority for parents, and their teachers.
Resilience describes our ability to recover quickly from difficulties, and research suggests it is a teachable trait; even for young children.
Studies show that today, one in four adolescent children experience mental health problems; unfortunately, these rates are at an all-time high.
With this in mind, we should understand it’s more important than ever to not only help our kids deal with stressful events but also equip them with the tools to handle adversity on their own.
Thankfully, schools have already begun to implement programs focused on developing resilience. But that doesn’t mean parents shouldn’t do their part to teach them a thing or two from home!
