The Secrets of Resilient Parenting

Parenting resi“Resilience is the ability to bounce back from setbacks, learn from failure, be motivated by challenges and believe in your own abilities to deal with the stress and difficulties in life.”  – The Resilience Factor, Drs. Reivich and Shatté

“The great surprise of the resilience research is the ordinariness of the phenomena.  Resilience appears to be a common phenomenon that results in most cases from the operation of basic human adaptational systems.  If those systems are protected and in good working order, development is robust even in the face of severe adversity.” – Ann Masten
