The world can be a scary place at times. Though parents want nothing more than to protect their kids from the ups and downs of life, they are tasked with the monumental responsibility of explaining the unexplainable to their children; from disease, death, and divorce, to natural disasters, crime, and war. It’s simply not possible to shield children from all the harsh realities of life, however, in a complimentary talk by International SOS Clinic Beijing next Thursday August 27, Dr. Stephanie Teoh will cover how parents can help children develop skills to handle adversity and life’s challenges. While parents can’t protect children from the world, they can help raise resilient children and provide them with the tools to deal with difficult times effectively with positive outcomes.
Dr. Teoh is a child health specialist at International SOS. Her talk will cover how to help children develop skills to handle stressors in a resilient way, how to recognize and help with depression, warning signs of risk-taking behaviors, and practical methods and tips to develop emotional resilience.
