SUMMARY: Dr John Irvine & Panel
“Emotional wellbeing is important in survival, jobs and success and happiness in life.”
Cultivating inner strength within our children
These are a few of the ideas discussed on the night:
Thank you to our panel members:
3. Partnerships create connectedness (between home – school – communities).
LINK: Linking home and school
4. Resiliency is for everyone, not just those in need. Life will include challenges
for everyone over time.
5. As parents, advocacy alone is not enough; we also need to role-model and give
permission for your child / family to adopt positive resilient behaviours and
opportunities to develop skills.
While ‘permission’ general refers to empowering your child, it also includes
setting boundaries around behaviours that could undermine their wellbeing
(e.g. prolonged screen time, bedtimes etc.)
