Building Resilience in Children and Teens builds resilience in parents by boosting our own "7 crucial C's." Dr. Ginsburg practices what he preaches by teaching parents healthy coping mechanisms, building our confidence and competence to handle our children's pain as they make mistakes and learn to fix them on their own.
I echo the reviewer who said "Run, don't walk, to your computer to order this book!"
I would recommend this book to all parents, teachers, coaches and anyone else that deals with children on a regular basis. It also teaches adults ways to interact with people of all ages to promote better understanding of peers and family members that may be going through difficult time in their life.

Building Resilience isn't just another parenting book -- not in my book. In all honesty, I truly appreciated the fact that he was not only a father of two teenage girls but also a pediatrician specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Effectively he saw and experienced both sides of the coin and in my eyes, that made him relevant and relatable to me. He also has this unique and refreshing ability to speak to parents vs. speaking down to them. He advocates for both the child and the parents.
Building Resilience presented me with many opportunities to look back on situations through a very different lens. Some of the material he speaks about isn't new to many parents but the way he communicates and frames these situations offered me plenty of ah-hah moments. Dr. Ginsburg has a great quote that I think sums up this book brilliantly - "As we raise children, our goal has to be to prepare children to be happy, healthy 35 year olds." In the end, isn't that what we as parents really want for our children?
I also want to quickly share that this is one of those books that makes you want to highlight and earmark certain pages to go back and read again when appropriate. This isn't a one time read but an incredibly valuable resource for any parent's library.
