How do we identify and reinforce our children’s strengths and assets? Dr. Susan Turben and Dr. Robert Brooks, internationally known author, lecturer and faculty member at the Harvard Medical School discuss nurturing resilience in children. Is resilience instinctive or learned? Dr. Brooks, co-author of “Raising Resilient Children” and “Understanding and Managing Children’s Classroom Behavior: Creating Sustainable, Resilient Classrooms” has found empathy to be the hallmark for emotional health and intelligence development. Parents and teachers are encouraged to look for strengths to build from and reinforce our children’s belief in themselves by helping them to realize that the accomplishments they experience are based in great part on their own efforts and abilities. Children have an inborn need to help each other. Increasing their self-esteem gives them the confidence they need to get involved and reach out in their community.
