Lets talk emotional resilience

So there is lots of talk about Emotional Resilience for our children and young people. What does it mean though and how important is it that children are armed with good levels of it to ensure they are able to cope with what life throws at them?

We thought we would show you this video from Harvard University that explains it in simple terms

Tappy Twins provides support and resources for children to keep themselves safe, information about where to get help and techniques for distracting themselves during emotional periods. If your a young person, or a parent who is concerned about your child please get in touch via our helpline. We are always here to help.

What a great idea this is. It’s the smart solution to enable 6-18 year olds the real meaning of money whilst gaining valuable life skills.

Are you aware of the risks of IMVU App?

Everyone needs to know that IMVU (Instant Messaging Virtual Universe) is a 3-D chat world site and App that has lots of adult content. The most explicit content (such as nudity and sexual images) is restricted to users 18+ who buy an Access Pass, but kids are likely to find sexual talk or behavior in public areas if they’re looking for it. There’s no restriction on language.

This site is definitely not for young people as their information remains public and is known for men trying to attract young people.

Stay Safe, Never give your personal information or arrange to meet anyone online.
