Resilience is a term that has gained traction in recent years, becoming the “buzzword” if you will. It’s easy to see why. It’s a word that resonates with parents, carers, educators- anyone who is involved in the lives of children and teenagers, as we all have similar goals – namely, to develop strong, capable, well-balanced and above all, kind, decent, and resilient young people.
This book is is a collection of insights from some of Australia’s most celebrated parenting experts on how we can raise kids who bounce back. They touch on some of the biggest and most challenging influences on young people today – including cyber safety, pornography, anxiety and self-harm – and they offer not only current statistics and information, but strategies to help us as parents, educators and carers, to navigate this minefield and raise them to become confident, resilient people.
