Raising a Resilient Teen: Can your teen bounce back?

Presented by the Newton North PTSO:

“Raising a Resilient Teen: Can your teen bounce back?”

  • What is resilience and how does it help teens manage adversity, develop adaptive coping strategies, and reach their full potential?
  • What practical strategies can parents/guardians use to cultivate resilience in their teenagers (and themselves!)?
  • How does resilience apply to the most ambitious and the most vulnerable teenagers?
  • How can a focus on resilience guide our handling of social media, drugs and alcohol, college applications, and other challenges?
  • What is the role of school and community resources in supporting teens and helping them feel empowered?
