January - Resiliency

Starting April 2021 and lasting for one year, each month the Scappoose Public Library will spotlight a new social-emotional skill for early learners. From empathy to responsibility to resiliency, we'll focus on some most important skills for your little one to practice. We'll have books to read together, activities for kids to explore, and information for parents. Thank you to the NW Early Learning Hub for a generous grant which will help fund this endeavor! January is about Resiliency.

Engage with your child about Resiliency

  • Resiliency is defined by Merriam-Webster as the ability to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens.
  • In order to help your child build their resiliency skills, it is important to support your child, but not try to solve every minor problem for them. Each time your child overcomes a problem they build the confidence necessary handle the next challenge.
  • Young children might not have the words to express their anxieties and fears. Watch for clues like being extra clingy, being more irritable or reverting to old behaviors you though they had outgrown. Use play to help them express their worries and spend extra time with them with them when they are anxious.
  • When your child faces a challenge and fails, encourage them to give it another try. Praise them for their effort regardless of the outcome. When you fail at something in front of your child, set a good example for them by letting them see you try again.
