Teaching Resiliency

Teaching our children to be resilient is vital; failure to do so can result in young adults (and eventually, adults) who cannot handle failure and/or criticism, often resulting in great stress and anxiety.

If you have a hard time with allowing your child to fail, telling them “no,” or letting them struggle, it could be a result of your own anxiety. Do a self-inventory and ask yourself what makes it difficult for you to not be a “helicopter” parent.
