Every child will face challenges, whether because of their own learning profile or temperament, or outside factors such as illness, family stress, and tragic events. Even seemingly mundane bumps in the road, such as a lost ballgame, failed test, or waning friendship, require children to be resilient, to manage even when life is not how you would want it to be. Resilience is supported by a set of teachable skills that parents and teachers can help children develop. This webinar discusses those skills and the strategies that can help children use them as tools throughout their lives.
