How to Foster Prosilience in young children
WHAT IS ProSILIENCE?
There are 6 key factors which play a role in the fostering of prosilience in a young child.
A child uses problem solving in order to successfully address and eliminate problems as they arise. This requires planning competence and decision-making skills. A child’s character can be affected by her ability to problem solve in the sense that she can use these skills to learn how to set realistic goals for herself, encourage herself to take risks, confidently explore her environment, and to come up with her own solutions to problems that come their way (Fröhlich-Gildhoff, 2015). Providing Rana with the skills, language and behaviour to use when trying to problem solve will help her in the classroom when she is unsure of what to do in certain moments of worry or frustration.
