We have a great group of participants attending the Spring 2022 session of Raising Resilient Kids. During our meetings, there’s been lively discussions and helpful problem-solving. In our most recent meeting, we focused on 10 ways to building resilience in ourselves and in our children. See the list below.
We examined the 10 ways to build resilience by providing detailed explanations. Then, our facilitators and/or participants offered real-life examples of how we’ve used each of the ways (identified below) to help build resilience in our children. It was a fruitful exercise and everyone learned something to take home and practice with our kids!
If you’re interested in learning more, please contact us to pre-register for the next session!

Learn What a Past Participant Said of Our Course
Raising Resilient Kids was a wonderful series that I am so happy I had the opportunity to participate in. Through this series, I gained new strategies to work with my own children through situations that, in the past, have felt overwhelming to me.
I walked away from this series with new language to use to work with my children and to help guide them through situations they may encounter in everyday life growing up. I am truly grateful for the discussions, encouragement, and guidance that this series provided.
This is a series that every parent should participate in!
