7 Ways To Help Teens Build Resilience

Child experts say that resilience is one of the most important things that parents can teach their children. Here are my top 7 tips on how to build resilience in your teen.

There are many different ways that you can help your teenager build resilience.

Probably the most important is to let them experience disappointment and letdowns.

In doing so they will learn to process and move past negative experiences.

Let your teen know that they have space where they can ask for help without feeling judged.

It’s also important to let them know that it is OK to express their feelings and emotions openly.

Make sure that they overhear you saying positive things about them because it will help them build confidence while also strengthening your relationship with them.

Help your children by teaching them to be resilient

Top 7 Ways To Help Teens Build Resilience:

  1. Create a space where they can ask for help
  2. Let them know that expressing their emotions is OK
  3. Don’t always step in to rescue your child, rather let them figure things out on their own
  4. Allow them to go through disappointment because it will teach them how to solve those issues and get past them
  5. Make sure that they overhear you saying positive things about them
  6. Help them to keep a positive perspective on negative situations
  7. Show them how to practice gratitude because this helps us deal with stressful situations more positively

Although our natural instinct as parents is to step in and save the day, this is not always the best response.

The best thing we can do is to show our kids that we love them while giving them the space to fail and learn from their own mistakes.
