It's natural for children to be disappointed when things aren't going their way. But in healthy development, a child gets better at adjusting to disappointment as they grow. After all, one of the hallmarks of maturity is the ability to cope with life's ups, downs, twists, and turns.
Unfortunately, many children fall apart when they can't have what they want. The muscle of flexibility and resilience is weak, making it impossible to simply "go with the flow" when faced with a challenging situation.
In this Master Class, we'll share practical tips for helping children develop resilience, tolerance, and flexibility.
We'll talk about how to navigate your child's frustration without lecturing, scolding, or losing your cool!
And we'll show you how to turn your child's disappointments into gifts that will help them mature, grow, and develop greater tolerance for change.
If you want to give your child the gift of greater resilience, join us!
