Raising Resilient Kids in an upside-down world

120min Masterclass by Naomi Holdt

This masterclass is designed for parents of kids and teens who want to understand what’s at the core of raising resilient children and to learn how to make simple changes that will have a direct and long-term impact on their children’s capacity for resilience.


If you're a parent ...

... then you're very much aware of the tremendous our challenges facing our kids and teens in our upside-down world.

These have increased significantly over the past few years and now, more than ever our focus needs to be on raising resilient children who can overcome whatever challenges come their way in life.

We can’t control the road ahead (we’ve been reminded of that so powerfully since the pandemic began three years ago), but we can prepare our children for it.

I share all of this (and so much more) in this 120min Masterclass.

Why raise "resilient kids"?

In an upside-down world, our children are so much more vulnerable and depression amongst the youth has sky-rocketed to astronomical levels.

About eight years ago I conducted an educational assessment on a young man (Let’s call him Mark) who had significant learning difficulties. Apart from his learning challenges, I also detected severe depression and in the feedback session with his parents, I recommended that this should be treated with medication and psychotherapy. 

To my knowledge, his parents followed through on this recommendation and I heard nothing more, until about eight months later when I received an email from a family member of his. It was short and concise and conveyed the most devastating news... Mark had committed suicide.

It was at that point, that my ponderings on this monumental topic led me to the same, simple conclusion.

Enrol now for this life-altering Masterclass where I share these thoughts with you.
