Resilience is the ability to cope with negative life events and challenges. It has been described as the capacity to “bounce back” from difficult situations and persist in the face of adversity. At COSKids, we know that life circumstances in this year’s “new normal” have created feelings of stress for adults, but these emotions of fear, stress, anger, being overwhelmed, are also felt by our children.
We continue to give children these social and emotional tools to help kids stay positive and build a strong sense of self in these challenging times:
In the same way we teach responsibility, manners, and self control, we also teach children how to face disappointment, learn from failure, and adapt to change. We recognize resilience in children when we observe their determination and perseverance to tackle problems and cope with emotional challenges.
