Your Developing Child

What is it that children truly need?  Beyond the roof over their head, food on the table and love, all parents aspire for their children to have happiness and a slew of other things.  But how are children equipped to lead an effective life?  What is needed when life inevitably offers some bumps and disappointments?  As we hope for success and all their dreams to come true, we can prepare children to have the strength to handle disappointment.

Important for building resiliency are trusting relationships with key adults: parents, teachers, coaches. It is about being able to delay gratification, having the ability to control the impulse to need it immediately.  Having resiliency is a bit like having an insurance policy.  If adversity happens, resiliency offers the toolbox of skills to cope.  Read on, check out the videos to explore how to facilitate building resiliency in your developing child.
