Real Kids in an Unreal world – Building Resilience in Today’s Children

Maggie Dent

Children need many essential experiences to build the competencies that will help them manage life the good, the bad and the ugly. This common sense, practical model will reassure those who work with children that what they have always known to be important in the early years of a child's education are still important!  The 10 building blocks model that Maggie created in response to a state government initiative in WA to promote the understanding of how to build resilience in children has been embraced as a model of understanding what every child needs to develop resilience.The model is a strengths based model that explores the essential needs of children and shows how parents can keep strengthening their children's capacity to manage their lives and be capable regardless of culture and socio economic status. This model has been adopted by many maternal health and parenting educators because of it's simplicity and Maggie has become a huge early years advocate as a result of this model. This focuses on children from birth to 12. Based on Maggie's book Real Kids in an Unreal World: Building Resilience and Self Esteem

Recorded: July 2010 Brisbane, Australia
