GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Kids face a lot these days, so it’s important for parents to teach them to become resilient. Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services says resilience is a person’s ability to persevere and move forward in times of stress.
What Parents Can Do
- Model resilience
- Stay connected to positive, supportive peer groups
- Help children build a good sense of self
There is a time when parents need to take a hands-off approach as children get older. Not interfering in stressful situations can help children become more independent, learn problem solving, and become more resilient.
