Toxic Stress and Resiliency

We are living through a unique time that may be causing additional stress on us and our children.  However, we all experienced stress in our lives prior to Covid-19, whether it was due to our living arrangements, interpersonal relationships, money issues, family illness or anything else.  One characteristic that helps us deal with all the stress in our lives is Resiliency.

I am currently taking on online course on developing resiliency in children.  I am going to share some of the information I am learning because I think it can help all of us be better parents, teachers, mentors, and friends with children and teens.

This is an introduction but feel free to utilize the whole Harvard site.
