It is possible for children to become strong, healthy and successful. Positive, caring, loving adults can be a positive influence in a child’s life. They can help that child build resilience against negative encounters that child experiences.

Why Resilience works

When children build up resilience, they learn to adapt to changing situations and maintain a hopeful outlook. They learn to see past stressful situations and pursue a better life. If children don’t have caring adults in their lives, they lose that ability to build up resilience and can lose their ability to combat negative experiences.
