Understanding Temperament & Promoting Resiliency Skills
Knowing that resilience is a major component of our human condition, it’s important to understand that each child (and adult for that matter) we work with is unique with their very own temperament. This gives way to preferences and contributes to what their attitudes will be toward things they experience, both good and bad. Our level of resiliency determines how we bounce back from difficulties, traumas, and failure. And as adults we know that failure is inevitable and a valuable teacher. The key is teaching the little ones in our care how to “bounce back” and learn how to overcome adversity.
