Building resiliency in adolescents starts in childhood. Everyone wants his or her child to be successful and happy in life. Building resiliency in teenagers takes time with outside support from your community and school.
What Is Resilience?
Resilience is the ability to handle problems and stress in life effectively. Resilient adolescents are able to overcome tragedy and challenges easily. They also recover from shock quickly. Those with resilience do not suffer from long lasting or psychopathological effects because of trauma.
Building Resiliency in Adolescents at Home
Developing resiliency in teenagers starts at home. It is crucial that parents provide the skills and tools for their teens to use in the future. As parents, you have many responsibilities when it comes to raising a child. Protective factors such as positive parenting styles, family support, and experience will help your child become a resilient adolescent.
