Raising Resilient Children

Have just been reading a great book called Raising Resilient Children by Brooks and Goldstein. Their definition of resilience is exactly what B & B is working towards.
'Resilience embraces the ability of a child to deal more effectively with stress and pressure, to cope with everyday challenges, to bounce back from disappointments, adversity and trauma, to develop clear and realistic goals, to solve problems, to relate comfortably with others, and to treat oneself and others with respect.'
This I believe is the dreams and wishes of parents.
