Cal gave an insightful presentation to the Tourette Association of America about building family resiliency.
Watch the video to learn more about these three take-aways:

It‘s daunting to anticipate every challenge children might face without really knowing what will actually happen in their lives. Raising children resiliently is the answer. Resilient children have the knowledge and skill to effectively face whatever comes their way.
We know you are busy. Here you will find short, easy to read stories that will help you to think about the resiliency skills kids need, as well as simple ideas for encouraging them to develop these skills. Pick a story from one of the resiliency concepts below and try out a simple parenting tip for making it a part of your family.
