Essentials for Parents


This development session boosts parents’ resilience skills and shows the importance of fostering resilience in all areas of a child’s life, both inside and outside of school. Parents have a vital role to play in helping their children develop resilience, but too often is the urge to protect them from setbacks. We tend to solve problems for them rather than supporting them to develop their own resilience. Parents will gain a better understanding of their own resilience, developing their child’s resilience and being a role model outside of the school environment.

“The course reiterated how important we are as an influence on our children. It was useful to recognise that the ‘soft’ skills are as important as the traditional ones.”
