Description:

Real children need real experiences with real people to grow up happy, healthy, strong, kind and resilient.
 
In the second edition of this bestselling book from one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors and educators Maggie Dent, Maggie explores the 10 essential building blocks that help children build resilience and self-esteem in our chaotic, uncertain world.
 
We can’t change the world, however we can help our children to develop emotional buoyancy and competence by experiencing life's joys and successes, as well as its challenges and setbacks. When this is done within the safety of supportive relationships—especially in families and communities—one building block at a time from birth to 12, children can grow into being the capable, independent adults we all yearn to meet one day.
