Great thoughts which accentuate my article, The Importance of Raising Resilient Children.
“The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It is the one that stands in the open where it’s compelled to struggle for its existence. Against the winds, rains and the scorching sun.”
What thoughts can you share on the importance of being resilient?
Thanks for your thoughts–and pics–on resilience. I read them, and thought–oh! I must have that. I can’t say I bounced back, exactly, because that sounds a little peppy. But I made it back–or maybe to a new level.
Nancy, that’s a great way to look at it, “made it back, or to a new level.” It’s easier for kids to bounce back, they generally have more energy than adults.
