Resilient Children

The Grit That Takes You Far In Life

Confucius said, “our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” As children overcome hurdles, they gain confidence in their abilities, increase self-motivation and are less likely to develop anxiety or other stress-related issues. No matter how talented, lucky or privileged your child is, they will still encounter people who will exceed them in some area. By teaching children how to fail “productively” and developing your child’s resilience, you can help them push through life’s toughest moments to pursue their most ambitious goals.

Resilience, the ability to adapt, tolerate stress, and bounce from failure and adversity, is an invaluable inner strength and a crucial determinant of ultimate success. The strength of resilience can transform inevitable life struggles into opportunities for growth. Even though this strength can be honed throughout adulthood, intentionally cultivating resilience from a young age elevates children’s moods, protects them from adversity by increasing their stress tolerance and reframing how they view obstacles.

Emotion regulation, the ability to identify feelings and manage them appropriately, is the first step in building resilience. Switching schools and difficulty making friends can affect some children so much it rocks their whole family’s lives. Without proper instruction, young children cannot determine whether a situation calls for a big or small emotion. curaJOY’s evidence-based training programs instruct your child on the life skills and emotional intelligence needed to succeed beyond the classroom.
