Parental Resilience for Service Provider
Evidence shows that parents who are able to effectively cope with life’s stresses develop resilience – the inner strength to be able to bounce back when things are not going well. This ability to deal with life’s ups and downs serves as a model of coping for their children. Parents are their model.
Most parents have connections that they have created or inner strengths that they may not know they could be using. These inner strengths and/or connections serve as a foundation for building their strong resilience. Inner strengths and connections may include but are not limited to one’s faith, a sense of humor, a supportive relative, being flexible, patience, etc. Parental resilience guides parents on how best to respond to their child/ren, when life gets tough.
