Good thingsHow to Raise an Emotionally Resilient Child

All parents want their children to be happy and able to cope with whatever life throws at them. However we know that it isn’t that straightforward. The latest Unicef report (2013) ranks the life satisfaction of children in the UK as 16th out of 29 countries and according to a report by Young Minds in 2014, 1 in 10 of our young people experience mental health difficulties. We can’t protect our children from the pressures and troubles of life but we may be able to help them cope with those pressures better, learn from setbacks and grab opportunities. How to Thrive are empowering parents to help children through difficult times as part of every day life.


Our parent workshops cover key factors that can have an impact on resilience and some of the myths that parents and children may have about what it means to be resilient. Parents are engaged in a discussion about the important role they can play in modelling for their children how they experience setbacks and deal with them. Practical ideas are introduced about what parents can do to develop resilient thinking habits over time.

Parents who attend

  • Will learn what factors increase children’s resilience and be able to identify ways in which they can influence these through their parenting.
  • Will be invited to consider how to ‘model’ or teach resilience in everyday situations.
  • Will learn to develop ways of talking to children about life’s setbacks, in ways that increase opportunities for them to be resilient.

The topics covered are particularly suitable for parents of children who are old enough to ‘think about their thinking’ – say Y5 upwards. However it’s also relevant for any parents who want to increase their own resilience.

There will be plenty of opportunity during the workshop to ask questions and participate in discussion.
