Predictable Ways to De-Escalate a Child Who is Ramping Up

Building Resiliency in Yourself & Your Child
Resiliency is the brain’s ability to respond to stress in a healthy way. It helps us manage both emotional and physiological arousal in ways that promote healthy relationships and a healthy body. Resiliency protects us and our children from the negative outcomes associated with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Resiliency is something we develop in ourselves in order to also cultivate it in our children.
