Resilience is the ability to recover from difficult and stressful situations. Even if our kids have already been through some tough stuff, we can help them build resilience.
No matter where we’re at in our parenting journeys, there are steps we can take to help our families grow stronger and closer. We can help our kids navigate tough times in positive ways.
While some of the adversity our kids face is outside of our control, there are opportunities to reduce the challenges they may face, and to help them reduce and manage the stress they experience. This can help lead to healthier, safer, stronger outcomes for their lives now and in the future.
