Raising resilient children in today’s world involves a delicate balance of nurturing their emotional and spiritual depths while preparing them for the practical realities they will face. The following may be just what they need for life’s inevitable challenges ahead:

  1. Tenderness: By showing love, affection, and gentleness in parenting, we create a secure environment where our children can grow. This nurturing environment is the foundation for their emotional and spiritual resilience.
  2. Training: This key point is more than just academic education. It’s about equipping our children with values and behaviors to serve them throughout life. This holistic approach will prepare them for any challenge they may face.
  3. Tools: Providing children with the necessary tools means giving them the emotional, intellectual, or spiritual resources to handle life’s challenges.
  4. Trials: While protecting our children from hardship is natural, experiencing trials is essential for developing resilience. Guiding them through difficulties teaches them to persevere and learn from setbacks.
  5. Triumphs: Celebrating successes instills confidence and reinforces the value of their efforts and resilience. It’s crucial to acknowledge their victories, both big and small.
  6. Trust: Building a foundation of trust involves being a reliable and consistent figure in their lives, which helps them feel secure and valued. Trust also encompasses teaching them to trust in themselves and their abilities.
  7. The Trinity: Incorporating spiritual growth through a relationship with the Trinity can give children a profound sense of purpose and strength. This approach can provide them with a perpetual source of comfort, ethical direction, and empowerment, equipping them to navigate life’s complexities with a deep-seated faith.

Together, these seven keys help children grow into adults who stand firm in their values, dare to pursue their dreams, and thrive through adversity.
