What is emotional resilience?

And why is it important for our kids?

Resilience is a person’s ability to recover and heal after tough times. For children, this could involve a range of experiences – from potentially stressful events, like changing schools or moving house, through to traumatic events, such as a family breakdown, natural disasters, or death.

Through a variety of nurturing and responsive interactions, you can help your child to understand, express and manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

Young people who are resilient not only cope better with the challenges presented in everyday life, but they also have the skills and tools that will help them deal with more complex challenges later in life.

The Resilient Kids Toolkit is packed full of activities and resources to help you and your child build emotional resilience, including:

Self-care plans

Strategies and activities to help look after your mind, body and spirit.

How to understand and manage emotions
