Building Resilience in Children – 20 Practical and Powerful Strategies

In today’s world, where children are constantly being compared and pushed to perform, it is easy to lose confidence and your sense of self-worth, if you do not feel you are the best or the brightest.   

Thank you to Karen Young, who posted valuable advice regarding the nurturing and building of your child’s resilience on Hey Sigmund.

All children face challenges and adversity.  Their ability to overcome this and to carry on, is determined by their resilience.  The idea is thus not to overprotect the child from all forms of stress and adversity, but rather to teach them the skills to cope and come out stronger on the other side.   Karen Young explains how to do this through the use of certain practical strategies.

How to boost your child’s immune system through food

When children are in close contact with each other (day care/ schools), viruses tend to spread like wild fire.  Constant visits to the doctor are expensive and it is not ideal to be on medication every other week.  It is thus important to research how you can boost your child’s immune system through the right types of food and supplements, enough probiotics, as well as enough relaxation time and sleep.  

Some foods rich in antioxidants and immune boosting nutrients are discussed, as well as tips in how to serve them in a child attractive manner.  Thank you to Donné Restom, for the valuable advice.
