Resilience is key in our day and age. We want our kids to be strong, to believe in themselves, to not shy away from the difficulties of life and be ready to face them with courage and confidence.

Check out this informative TED Talk by professor Sam Goldstein. "Resilience embraces the ability of a child to deal effectively with stress and pressure, to cope with every day challenges, to bounce back from disappointments, adversity and trauma, to develop clear and realistic goals, to solve problems, to relate comfortably with others and to treat one's self and others with respect. Scientific studies of children facing great adversity in their lives support the importance of a resilient mindset as a powerful force. Resilience explains why some children overcome overwhelming obstacles, sometimes clawing and scraping their way to successful adulthood, while others become victims of their early experiences in environments."

This is what we work for and this is what we believe in for our young people. This is #APPA!
