Another great read by Nathan Wallis 💕As parents we worry about our kids: we want to prevent fallsand fix problems. But, regardless of the support and shelterwe offer them, our children will face setbacks and stresses:from daily squabbles over who had it first, to playground bullying, to frightening earthquakes.As I look to an uncertain future, mindful of theprevalence of anxiety and depression among young Kiwis, it strikes me that we need to do all we can to help kids grow resilience. Here's a written interview that I did with Family Times which emphasises the profound importance of a baby’s/young child’sattachment to a primary carer in terms of the development of their brain.
