Why Resiliency is So Important to Teach to and Nurture in Our Kids
Our Raising Youth Series is back with Kathy Roberts coming to speak on Sunday, April 7 at 6 p.m. As pendulums do, they will swing through a wide arc and swing right back. In the last decade, the parenting pendulum took us through a period of overprotection, helicopter parenting, and smoothing out the bumps and valleys of our children’s lives. Mostly out of fear and good intentions, we DID lots of things for our kids that they could have done for themselves. Our kids became Dis–abled, Dis-couraged, and lost confidence in their own skills. Most are now learning how to fail and recover at the age of 25, which is not ideal. But we parents are resilient and can learn a new way (or an old way!) to En-able and En-courage our kids to live independently, confidently and resiliently. Come share and learn with us as we see how we got to this place and how to change our path forward. Please RSVP to Maggie Paul, mpaul@cathedralATL.org.
