'Raising Resilient Children' with Dr Mary O’Kane 14.07.20

DONEGAL Library Service are delighted to announce that Dr Mary O’Kane will be hosting a talk on Saturday, 18th July, at 11am with the theme of ‘Raising Resilient Children’. This talk will be available on the Donegal Library Services Facebook Page .
'Raising Resilient Children' on Donegal Library Services Facebook Page .
Dr Mary O'Kane is a Lecturer in Education and Psychology and is a regular contributor on Ireland AM on both parenting and education issues.
Dr O’Kane said: "Raising Resilient Children will explain how resilience is the ability to recover from life's difficulties and the courage to fight back from adversity. Parents are one of the most important influences on children's resilience. There are times when we cannot influence the stress they are under but we can help them to develop coping skills to face life's challenges, rather than swoop in and rescue our children from adversity".
In this video Dr Mary O'Kane will look at ways we can help our children to develop the strength to overcome setbacks themselves.
Libraries in Donegal have access to over 120 books on the key topics of healthy eating, physical activity and mental health for both adults and children. In addition Donegal Library Service has access to ebooks and regularly run health events in libraries. For more information see www.donegallibrary.ie .
