Cultivating Resilience in Children

We look forward to having Colleen Drobot, of Drobot Counselling, speak to our parent body on Wednesday May 9th, 1pm, in the PJ Learning Commons.

“Humans are some of the most adaptive creatures on the planet.

Many of us are able to overcome adversity and find creative solutions to our problems, but unfortunately this is not the case for everyone. Raising resourceful and resilient children has never been more important. Children must face disappointment, loss, and circumstances they cannot change.

How can we as parents cultivate resilience so that our children will not only endure these experiences, but will be able to gain strength and confidence in their ability to cope with them?

In this presentation, we will uncover the roots of resilience and offer ideas as to how parents can foster this process in their children.”
