September 18th – How Can We Help Children Become More Resilient?
The cornerstone for developing resilience in children is a combination of supporting connections, pleasant experiences, and the development of adaptability abilities. A common thread in children who develop resilience, for example, is the presence of a loving and caring parent or caregiver. When children have at least one attentive adult in their lives who can act as a buffer when they suffer trauma, it is less likely that their emotional development will be disrupted.
