[Video Playlist] We Hear You

We hear youTired of needing to be resilient? Frustrated by your leadership? Need help managing challenging behaviors? Struggling with your work-life balance? We know, we hear you, and we are here for you. This four-episode limited series offers you a safe space and an opportunity to pause, reflect, focus, and take action in order to work through your challenges. You’ll find no “quick fixes” in these videos, but we do hope you’ll find some solace, and that you’ll pick up a new strategy or maybe just a new perspective.

What "building your bounce" means. In addition to our infant/toddler and preschooler initiatives, we also focus on promoting the health and well-being of all adults who parent, nurture, and/or work with young children through a focus on adult resilience. The critical connection between children’s resilience and the health and wellness of the adults in those children’s lives cannot be underestimated. We began this initiative in response to the growing understanding and appreciation that promoting children’s resilience depends significantly on the resilience of the adults who care for them.
