To be resilient requires the ability to think before acting, rather than allowing our actions to be dominated by our emotions.

 

Children with a resilient mindset can set goals, solve problems, relate to others ad develop empathy, altruism, and self-discipline.  To raise resilient children, parents don't focus on building walls and stronger locks to keep the world out; rather, they help their children develop the skills and abilities to handle what life brings.

 

Over 1/3 of children today live in single-parent home placing additional stress on the parent and child.
