I am wondering how children are perceiving all of the events unfolding around them? As children, they are looking at us, the adults, to see how we respond to the crisis. Do we demonstrate panic, finger pointing and blaming, paralysis, ignorance or are they seeing resilient parents, making plans and taking on this challenge with an almost childlike wonder to explore new ways of saving water and problem solving with energetic resolve.
Resilience is a powerful mindset. One that we can demonstrate to and teach our children. The ability to bounce back from life’s adversities is a gift. The speed at which we can bounce back demonstrate the amount of tenacity we have, the sheer determination and perseverance to not allow life’s events get us down.
The Infochart provides a quick reference guide to parents wanting to know more about resilience, the characteristics of resilience and how to create a resilient mindset in your child.
