Developing Resilience with our Children

Why is Resilience important?

When we talk about resilience, we’re talking about a child’s ability to cope with ups and downs, and bounce back from the challenges they experience during childhood – for example moving home, changing schools or dealing with the death of a loved one. Building resilience helps our children not only to deal with current difficulties that are a part of everyday life, but also to develop the basic skills and habits that will help them deal with challenges later in life, during adolescence and adulthood and supports their positive mental health and wellbeing.
