Description - Nurturing Resilience in Our Children by Robert B. Brooks

You can help your children feel confident, confront life's challenges, and bounce back from the frustrations that come with growing up. I think my wife and I provide our children with a great deal of love, a good education, and enriching community activities. Are these things enough to guarantee that our children will be resilient? Sometimes the mean things my ten-year-old son and my thirteen-year-old daughter say to other kids or even each other surprise me. What can we do to help them to be more considerate and empathic? Is resilience inherited, at least in part?"Nurturing Resilience in Our Children" is Drs. Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein's follow-up to their revolutionary bestseller, "Raising Resilient Children". Here they expand their theory of resilience with in-depth answers to the many questions they've received from parents just like you. In "Nurturing Resilience in Our Children", you will learn how to help your children acquire the building blocks of resilience and reinforce those lessons on a day-to-day basis. When you instill resilience in your children, you give them the emotional tools they need to resolve problems and make sensible, reasoned decisions throughout their lives. The resilient child also learns how to develop self-control, build interpersonal skills, and handle challenges and frustrations more effectively. If you have questions about resilience and your child, you'll find the answers here in "Nurturing Resilience in Our Children".
