WEEK 16 - Friday 14 January 2022

This week we have been focusing on one of the Hessle values - Resilience 

We interpret ‘Resilience’ to mean that “We are determined, we do not give up when things get tough. We persevere. We know that learning is often hard but we persevere.” 

When young people are resilient, they cope much better during or after difficult situations. We often hear the term ‘bouncing back’ which young people can often do. Your child needs resilience to navigate life’s ups and downs and is an important factor to the development of our young people.

Young people can need resilience for a variety of situations; peer group disputes, struggling with their classwork or bigger issues like a family breakdown, family illness or death or they may just have an anxious personality. We can’t always prevent our children from experiencing tough times but we can all play a big role in building their resilience. This support can come from parents, grandparents, aunties, teachers and even from their peers.

Resilience is more than just coping. When you’re resilient, you’re more prepared to seek new ways to overcome your challenges and achieve your goals. 

Here is a clip from the young minds website that you might want to watch with your child. It looks at What Resilience Means To Young People?
