Raising resilient young people

When we talk about resilience, we’re describing a person’s ability to cope with ups and downs and bounce back from the challenges that life can throw at us. 

Resilient young people are better able to make sense of the world around them, build strong relationships, and seek out support when they experience difficulties. Good problem-solving skills and the ability to work towards realistic goals also gives teenagers a greater feeling of control over their lives and a sense of positive self-worth.
