Some children might find coping with change a bit frightening. They might feel meeting new people is scary or that learning a new skill such as walking or reading is too hard.
Children and adults find different situations stressful but the feelings are similar. How we cope with these situations, learn from them and move on depends on how resilient we are.
Resilience is our ‘bounce-back ability’. It’s how easy we find it to bounce back from the obstacles life throws at us.
Resilience is something we are born with. We can build on our resilience throughout our lives. Parents can boost their children’s resilience through their everyday interactions and activities.
Read more about resilience for 0-6 year olds in the ‘Building resilience in young children’ booklet.
