Helping Your Child Build Inner Strength
What Gives a Child Inner Strength?
Experts say that the single most important thing that gives children inner strength is having parents or other adults who are positive and nurturing.
Other things that help include:
- Cognitive skills, such as concentration, memory, and logical thinking.
- Social skills, such as behaving properly, showing love, and sharing.
- A stable environment with rules and boundaries.
- Opportunities to contribute.
- Being listened to.
