Summer: A Perfect Time to Build Resilience!
Through your gift you contribute to our mission to help people of all abilities achieve happiness and fulfillment.
Summer is a great time of year, typically filled with family vacations, outdoor activities and of course, a break from school. But a break from school shouldn’t mean a break from learning; and therefore, teachers will typically assign summer projects and reading assignments. “When you’re helping your children with their summer learning, don’t forget to work on resilience skills, too,” says Paul LeBuffe, Director of the Devereux Center for Resilient Children.
Self-confidence, in particular, is a critical social and emotional tool, which all people need throughout their lives. Like other social and emotional skills, self-confidence can be taught. Follow the link below to read about promoting your children’ self-confidence this summer and throughout the year.
