Kids cope with uncertainties

The uncertainties and fears of everyday life have triggered new attempts to help kids develop personal resilience.

This fall, some schools are prioritizing strategies to help students cope.

As a result, classroom breaks might include quiet music, a non-competitive game on the playground (even when it’s not PE!) or line-dancing. Some teachers pull out a joke book, merely to trigger laughter and a release of pent-up emotions.

Will it help children feel empowered to cope with life? It’s worth a try.
