Building Children's Resilience: Essential Tips for Parents of Children birth-12

An essential pocket guide to Maggie's 10 Essential Resilience Building Blocks.

Every parent wants their child to grow up happy, healthy, strong, kind and resilient. This book aims to guide parents in their everyday decision-making to raise kids who are just that. In our ever-changing world it is important to understand what resilience is and how to build it in our children.

The capacity for building coping and enabling abilities, as well as help-seeking strategies and tangible life skills will help your children navigate the world ahead. The book condenses and updates material from Maggie Dent’s bestselling 2008 book, Real Kids in an Unreal World (new edition coming later in 2016). It outlines 10 key building blocks for children birth–12.

We can build our children’s strengths—one building block at a time—and we can even start before birth.
