    This is the type of pilot that I want to pioneer in our locality – thank you for sharing this brilliant article because this is the best preventative measure children can learn to build resilience in their lives for the sustainability of the rest of their lives. Just beautiful!

    Great site, and a strong resiliency message. I’ve been living resiliency my entire life… before I knew what it was in fact. Been speaking about it and teaching it for a number of years as a teacher and school counselor. To me, resiliency is the essence of human success and navigating life’s waters without it is very difficult.

    Added your site to my blogs worth following list at http://www.seangrainger.com/. Thanks for spreading the good word.

    I’m thrilled to hear about this movement in our schools! Resiliency, perseverence, and self-confidence are necessary ingedients for a healthy, happy, successful life.

    But it’s easiest and most effective to plant and nurture these “seeds” when our children are infants and toddlers. Babies are ready to experience some safe struggles. They don’t see frustration (or even failure) as negative, or something to be feared.

    Facing and overcoming obstacles is what builds true resiliency. I give examples and encouraging advice to parents in a recent post: A Lesson From Babies…It’s Okay To Struggle

    Wow I admire those kids who think positively towards their test works. This is what we call as the power of mind.
