Ditch the Bubble Wrap
It’s understandable that parents sometimes wish they could surround their teen with bubble wrap. We want to protect them from everything the world throws their way. But there’s something even better than bubble wrap: resilience. With resilience, your teen develops internal strength rather than relying on an external shield. Resilience helps a teen move through adversity so they can keep moving towards their goals. In fact, lessons learned through resilience enable teens to handle bumps in the road well into the future. So ditch the bubble wrap and help them learn resilience instead.
