We want our children to be confident, happy, to think for themselves, set goals and strive, but how do we support their development this way? While humans are some of the most adaptive creatures on the planet, with the capacity to overcome adversity and find creative solutions to our problems – this capacity isn’t always realized. Raising resourceful and resilient children has never been more important and the role of tears in this process never more misunderstood. Adults play a key role in cultivating the roots of resilience that have lasting effects on their ability to endure adversity and to be transformed.The key to success is to harness a child’s desire for relationship by focusing on belonging as their most foundational need. We cannot lead children whose hearts we do not have. In this interactive presentation, we will focus on the importance on how to foster strong connections with children and how to keep their hearts soft. The importance of human relationships in healthy development along with the role of shyness will be examined with an eye to cultivating attachment villages to raise our children in.
