Tell your child how much you love them, and don’t forget to remind them how proud you are of them. Just by telling your child that you believe they can do it can really make them want to do it!
CHARACTERISTICS OF A RESILIENT CHILD
If you want to see how resilient your children are, keep an eye out to see if they can:
- Tackle problems on their own
- Manage their emotions
- Take risks
- Face challenges confidently
- Solve problems efficiently
LONG TERM EFFECTS OF RESILIENCE
When these qualities are inbuilt in someone from an early age, they are able to reach their long term goals and work their way through their problems independently. A resilient child is strong, self-sufficient, self-sustaining, and self-reliant when all grown up. In this way, development of resilience in children holds special significance in their upbringing.
