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.
The self develops out of experiences, making the children aware of their own body and their own feelings. It is important to help create awareness and to empower children to express themselves verbally (Fröhlich-Gildhoff, 2015). Because Rana does speak the language of the kindergarten, her educators can find ways to encourage her to use her words so that she feels more comfortable and empowered. The parents can do that same at home. They can encourage her to be aware of her feelings by reading social/emotional stories at home and by finding ways for Rana to relate to the characters and talk about when she is happy, sad, scared. This way she will know all that all of these feelings are valid and important to experience and express.
