The 7 C's of Resilience

Quote:

The 7 C's of Resilience

All children have abilities and strengths that can help them cope with everyday life. As parents, you can develop your children's resilience by paying attention to those strengths and building on them. But what are the ingredients of resilience? There are 7 essential components, all interrelated, called the 7 Crucial Cs.

Competence - the ability to handle situations effectively.

Confidence - the solid belief in one's own abilities.

Connection - close ties to family, friends, school, and community give children a sense of security and values that prevent them from seeking destructive alternatives to love and attention.

Character - a fundamental sense of right and wrong that helps children make wise choices, contribute to the world, and become stable adults.

Contribution - when children realize that the world is a better place because they are in it, they will take actions and make choices that improve the world. They will also develop a sense of purpose to carry them through future challenges.

Coping - children who learn to cope effectively with stress are better prepared to overcome life's challenges.

Control - when children realize that they can control their decisions and actions, they're more likely to know that they have what it takes to bounce back.

I think this is good for any child to know, not just the ones with allergies.

These points are very good. Thank you for bumping it because I have had this discussion with people on how to make kids more resilient.
