Raising An Emotionally Resilient Child

ParentCircle

It is not possible to safeguard our children from the various obstacles that life puts in their path. However, parents can equip their children with one of the most effective tool their children would need to respond to the challenges of life, that is emotional resilience.

According to an article titled ‘Our Kids Need Resilience to Succeed’ in k5learning.com, “Our kids will deal with problems big and small – ranging from adapting to a new classroom, to bullying by classmates, or even more traumatic events. To boot, there are the uncertainties of growing up. The ability to thrive despite these challenges depends on your child’s resilience.”

Therefore, it is very important that parents make their children emotionally resilient. But to make their children emotionally resilient, parents first need to understand what resilience is and how it can help children.

Emotional resilience is the ability to regulate emotions and cope with disappointments in a balanced way. Resilient children do not let adversity define them. They have the ability to overcome disappointments by perceiving bad times as a temporary state of affairs, says k5learning.com.

Parents can teach their children to be emotionally resilient. Reading the book ‘A Parent’s Guide to Building Resilience in Children and Teens: Giving Your Child Roots and Wings’ by Kenneth R. Ginsburg MD, FAAP, can provide parents with valuable insight into this topic. According to healthychildren.org, “Dr. Ginsburg has identified seven Cs of resilience, recognizing that resilience isn’t a simple, one-part entity. Parents can use these guidelines to help their children recognize their abilities and inner resources.”

So, if you want to know more about how you can raise an emotionally resilient child, please go through the pages of this ClipBook.
