Raising Resilience in Elementary Schoolers
The transition from preschool to elementary school (or one grade to the next) comes with a lot of change, and your child may be adjusting to new routines and expectations. No matter how your child responds to change, all kids need support in learning how to handle the ups and downs of life—even in elementary school. You can be there with them, teaching them how to cope with challenges, manage stress and make healthy choices along the way. These skills ultimately help your elementary schooler build resilience.
