Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Resilience the ability to recover from setbacks, rise above difficult circumstances, and learn from mistakes is a trait with which all children are born, yet it diminishes in today's pressure-filled world. Ginsburg (pediatrics, Children's Hosp. of Philadelphia, Univ. of Pennsylvania Sch. of Medicine), along with Jablow (coauthors, But I'm Almost 13!: Raising a Responsible Adolescent), approaches this topic both as a doctor and as a parent. Defining the seven "C's" of resilience competence, confidence, connection, character, contribution, coping, and control he teaches parents and other adults how to help kids become more capable of meeting life head-on. This is a thorough, sensible book filled with commonsense solutions for daily life. Many of today's parents are too connected, writes Ginsburg, hovering like "helicopters" around their children. One of his helpful ideas is a nightly check-in between parents and kids; not an interrogation, just an "I'm home, good night!" approach. He also looks at terrorism, divorce, death, and fears. As good as Robert Brooks and Sam Goldstein's Raising Resilient Children: Fostering Strength, Hope, and Optimism in Your Child and an excellent addition for public libraries.
