Some children have difficulty coping with mistakes and disappointments. For these kids, every day challenges can feel insurmountable. Negative, all or nothing thinking may be a constant source of stress, and they have little confidence in their ability to solve their own problems and bounce back after adverse events.
With parental support and therapy, children who may not be naturally hard wired with resilience and optimism, can develop critical coping strategies and skills to use when confronted with setbacks, mistakes, and life stressors. With increased feelings of self-efficacy and interpersonal empowerment, kids and teens begin to recognize and appreciate their strengths and talents, helping them to feel more comfortable in the world.
