Today, we will look at Dr. Ginsburg’s third “C” of resilience:

  1. Competence
  2. Confidence
  3. Connection
  4. Character
  5. Contribution
  6. Coping
  7. Control

Having close relationships with family, friends, and the community develops a sense of security and creates pathways for us to pursue our goals and dreams. Studies have shown that people who have high hope have better psychological and physical-health outcomes. We can help our kids develop connections by allowing them to express their emotions so that kids will feel comfortable and secure in reaching out during rough times and address conflict openly in the family (in a healthy way!) to resolve issues.
