Resilience is key in supporting our young children to cope with the ups and downs that life throws at them - it is what helps them to bounce back from adversity. It helps our children to work towards developing solutions when faced with challenges and gives them the internal self-belief to overcome difficulties.
In this webinar, Dr Mary O’Kane offers practical advice on how we can best support our children in becoming more resilient and having greater confidence in their own abilities.
