Tools for Success: Building Resiliency

We all want our children to be happy, capable, and confident. Giving them tools to solve problems will help them cope with disappointment and meet difficulties with strength and resilience. In this session, attendees will re-fill their parenting tool bags with practical advice, real life examples, and ideas for step-by-step implementation. Bear Creek's Lower School Dean of Students Tressa Parker will share her insight and answer questions. Intended audience: families with children in preschool through grade 6.
