The Resiliency Puzzle Intro

In this podcast, Todd and Julie Fisher will discuss why so many kids lack resiliency, which is the ability to cope with adversity and persevere without giving up. They explore how fear and technology have led us to rob our kids of opportunities to learn from their mistakes and succeed on their own. Todd and Julie talk about the creation of The Resiliency Puzzle, a curriculum for parents, educators and other professionals, that centers on learning to make small changes to what we do to encourage more resilient behaviors in our kids. The other episodes in this series will take a more in depth look at the four main pieces of the resiliency puzzle: Relationships; Emotional Skills; Competence; and Optimism.
