Raising Resilient Children
A presentation for parents and grandparents that demonstrate principles of living and encourage a healthy, resilient and meaningful life. This presentation is of interest to parents who wish to promote a solid foundation of healthy living, and prepare their children for the inevitable challenges and struggles they will face in their futures?
It focuses on developing
personal resiliency in our
children as the survival strategy
for the 21st Century .
Too often parents buffer their children from the reasonable and natural consequences of their own actions. Parents that overprotect or rescue their children rob them of the opportunity to develop a track record of success in dealing with the pitfalls of life. This often leaves a child without the self worth and problem solving skills necessary to function in society. This presentation encourages children to respond to life by choice rather than react to life by chance.
