Resiliency is the ability for any of us, including our kids, to bounce back from adversity. The potential for happiness or success comes from how we take snippets of those bad days, turn ourselves around and bounce back from stress, challenge, tragedy, trauma, or bad situations.
Listen as Colleen explains what resiliency is, how it can be nurtured in our kids and how we should work towards more of it for healthier families.
