3.3 6.2 Analyse the importance of supporting resilience in children and young people.
To get children to become resilient - to rely on themselves, they've got to believe that they are capable of doing this - how can adults help them?
PSE - adults have got to take children seriously, listen to them, [ make them feel that they are important, encourage children to try things out for themselves (you start with young children, by being close by, so they know there is an adult there
if they need them - this often gives them more confidence to try things). You praise and encourage and praise, if they say things such 'I can't do it, or it's wrong again' when completing a jigsaw, you encourage them by saying they aren't doing anything wrong they are trying/practising; you can tell them when you learnt knitting/cooking/skiing you had to try many times until you could do something.
You help build children's confidence, self-esteem and self-image - having those will help anyone (of whatever age) and build up resilience to try things out, not give in or up, learn that it's perfectly normal to try some things often before they have accomplished something, but not worrying if they don't don't suceed in everything.
You can help by talking at circle time of something that you are not so good at i.e. everytime I try and grow a plant it dies, and finish off with - but I'm very good at washing my car and making it shine like new. read stories of resilience i.e. Jack and the beanstalk.
