In every spiritual tradition, we find teachings that lead to a fulfilling life - such as generosity, kindness, honesty, determination, and patience. Today, a growing body of research from neuroscience and social psychology supports these teachings, offering insights into cultivating these virtues in ourselves and our families. Raising Resilience is a practical guide for parents and educators of children from preschool through adolescence, detailing ten universal principles for happy families and thriving children.

In the follow-up to his acclaimed Growing Up Mindful, Dr. Christopher Willard bridges the latest science with Eastern wisdom to explore ourselves and share with our children. Topics include:

  • cultivating kindness, gratitude, and generosity
  • simplifying family life
  • promoting healthy relationships with technology, sex, and drugs
  • teaching children about privilege
  • working with perfectionism
  • utilizing the science of self-compassion
  • practicing patience and grit
  • and much more.
