Bounce Back & Thrive!

Bounce Back & Thrive!
...a new program for parents and guardians with children under 8 years
A resiliency skills training program for parents with children under 8 years. The program is designed to help parents help their children build the resilience necessary to handle life's inevitable bumps in the road. Strategies will include, using empathy, developing a 'can-do' view and building an environment of positivity.

As part of the study, you will be asked to fill out online surveys and participate in the Bounce Back and Thrive program.
