Raising Children in a Recession #2

Last post, I began to discuss how a hardship can inspire resilience. Resilience is born from persistent struggle in the face of hardship. Our children can be inspired by our courageous struggles to achieve our goals.

A resilient spirt is also a problem-solver, sorting through many possible solutions before choosing the perfect remedy for a given situation. Similarly, we want our children to develop their problem-solving capacities.

If our children can delay gratification of their desires, our children can create many possible resolutions to a given dilemna, ulitmately choosing only the best fitting solution.

I will continue to discuss instilling a resilient spirit in our children next time.
