Building Resilience and Self Esteem
Wed. 24 May 2017, 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm AEST
Success isn't all about a score at VCE or University. Being able to bounce back, take a risk, have a go and solve problems are important life skills for children and adults. Resilience helps us to take on life’s challenges and to have some independence and confidence as we proceed through life. To be resilient helps us to reach realistically for our goals and dreams and to tackle the difficult times. The presentation provides strategies to help build a positive self-esteem and resilience in your child.
