Tulsa Kids Magazine (July 2017) story by Brandon Schmitz
The article begins, “Most parents and caregivers want to raise resilient children – children who are able to overcome hardships of varying magnitudes. Indeed, strengthening this “muscle” within a child leads to greater long-term mental health.
How someone deals with an issue depends on how his or her brain is wired. In essence, resiliency boils down to a person’s ability to solve problems. Not all kids have the same problems, and certainly, not all kids try to solve problems the same way.”
Family & Children’s Services Project Director Kimberly Parker and Clinical Supervisor Jessica Cothran spoke in the article about building resiliency and explained some indicators to help parents identify problems and address issues.
