Developing Grit: Mental Determination & How to Cope with the Pressures of School
One of the challenges faced by children and adolescents in today’s world of rapid and constant change is how to manage the resulting stress that is part of their daily life. In and of itself, stress is not a negative thing. Learning how to view stressors in a more positive, less threatening light, can greatly enhance students’ ability to deal with the events of day-to-day life. As parents, our instinct is to protect our children from negative experiences in life, but is that really helping them?
This presentation delivered by Canadian International School (CIS)'s secondary school counselors, Kristy Finlay & Ron Drisner, will give parents tips about how to encourage their children to take the risks that are essential for growth, by creating a space for “safe failures”.
