It’s a given that we don’t know what the future holds for our children. But one thing we can be sure of its likely to bring a combination of highs and lows. If we teach them the right skills now, they’ll be able to confidently embrace whatever the future brings their way. Of course resilience, self-confidence and respect for others, aren’t just skills that will help children in the future, they’re the tools they need to navigate the increasingly complicated world they live in today. Many kids struggle with fitting in, and keeping up in the classroom or at sport. If kids can learn what they have inside is greater than any of the obstacles they’ll face, life will be all about possibilities.
