Raising Resilient Children and Teens
How to help our young people fill their Resilience backpack
We all want to see our children reach their best outcomes and mature into healthy, strong resilient young people. Resilience involves the ability to ‘bounce back’ or recover when things go wrong or negative experiences impact us. By giving our children key strategies to develop resilience, we prepare them for life.
During this session, parents will be provided with key skills and strategies our children require in order to be resilient, strong and capable young people.
The six key areas that children require to develop resilience:
- Navigating difficult relationships
- Conflict management skills
- The personal values and attitudes we want to foster in our children
- Developing positive relationships
- How to foster optimistic thinking and self-talk
- Coping with stress and anxiety
