How to Raise A Resilient Kid


HUFF POST PARENTS just published a great article titled ‘HOW TO RAISE A RESILIENT KID” by Lorraine Allen once again validating the work we do here at GROWING SOUND. Everything we do stems from the latest research in social-emotional development including Resilience Theory.

Allen’s article goes on to mention “If we give our kids the tools they need to bounce back from adversity in childhood, it will continue to serve them well their whole lives…” Her suggestions include 1) Offer Support 2)Promote Optimism 3)Foster Self Control and 4) Build Purpose.

GROWING SOUND has a CD project to help you with every one of these suggestions! Check out the full article here, then join others in adding songs to your playlist to help raise a resilient kid!
