Boosting Your Child’s Resilience & Independence
Is your child in the “I can do it myself!” stage? Whether your child tries to pour milk from the heavy carton, or jumps back on the jungle gym after a slip, she’s demonstrating independence and resilience. How can you foster these two incredibly important emerging skills?

Early childhood specialist Nefertiti Poyner shares the building blocks for raising a resilient, independent child who’s able to confidently take initiative, persist through challenges, and try new things.
