Are your kids emotionally resilient? Do they bounce back after they experience the big – and little – setbacks in life?

Kids who are emotionally resilient perform better academically and socially – and that’s what we’re talking about in today’s show. My guest is Rachel Robertson, director of education and development for Bright Horizons Family Solutions. Rachel is a nationally recognized expert in child behavior management and early childhood education and brings a wealth of knowledge to parents of kids of varying ages.

In today’s show we’ll talk about:

  • What does emotional resiliency look like?
  • The impact of being a helecopter parent
  • Signs to tell if your child is struggling with emotional resiliency
  • Why optimism is such an important trait in kids
  • How teaching kids to “transition” from task to task is vital
  • Red flag scenarios that challenge resiliency
  • Speicial needs of military families
  • The importance of parental modeling

It’s a great topic for kids of all ages. I hope you stick around!
