Helping children to become resilient is about striking a careful balance between instilling the importance of perseverance and providing the right support when they feel like giving up.
When seemingly overwhelming tasks are broken down into simple steps, children are encouraged to keep going especially when they have the right knowledge and skills to apply.
We act as mentors, motivating children when they can’t see beyond a disappointing grade or a failed audition. We do this because even as we empathise with their fears and worries, we never let them give up on themselves.
Helping children to become resilient is about showing them that every mistake is a learning point, that setbacks don’t define them and that they can still achieve their dreams if they learn never to give up.
