Raising Resilient Children

As parents, we want to make certain that our kids have all the tools they need to become strong, resilient adults. However, some common parenting strategies can accidentally hinder our children developing these critical skills. Learn parenting strategies from a biological and behavioral perspective that build student resilience. Parents will better understand their children through the lens of brain development and emotional intelligence. They will leave with concrete strategies to build their own resilience and that of their children
