Kids today seem to be less resilient than they were in previous generations. Many young people in the twenty-first century don't seem to have the coping skills to deal with adversity, and they lack the ability to persevere when the going gets tough. In The Resiliency Puzzle, author Julie Fisher provides a model for understanding how kids can develop the skills they need to cope with adversity and persevere while gaining strength, character, and the fortitude to succeed. It teaches adults what resiliency looks like and provides concrete suggestions for how to instill those specific qualities that empower kids to be resilient. Fisher discusses how it's never too late to help children learn to develop resiliency-building skills. It can be accomplished by actively parenting, coaching, educating, and mentoring kids in a way that provides for and promotes those opportunities to model resiliency ourselves.
