Resilience in Children

Teaching children to cope with difficulties means providing them with the necessary tools for their emotional and social development. We cannot avoid adversity, but we can help them develop resilience.

When we teach them to face difficulties, we help them to develop strengths that will allow them to achieve their goals and objectives, in the same way, children learn to have tolerance for frustration.
