It turns out resilience is an important mental health characteristic that helps adolescents and adults cope in the face of adversity or stress.
Jem Muldoon's insight:

Very clear connection drawn between resilience and mental health.


"Adolescence is a point when mental health disorders often first arise, due in part to things that are out of anyone’s control. But adolescents who are resilient find ways to reduce the negative effects of stress on their lives and thrive despite difficult circumstances."

Opinion: ‘The Road Out’ of poverty begins with great teachers | eSchool News

Opinion: ‘The Road Out’ of poverty begins with great teachers | eSchool News | Building Resilient Students | Scoop.it
In a rundown Appalachian town, Deborah Hicks once dreamed of an education that would take her far away from the life she knew. She was a precocious little girl who was angry about the harsh poverty that surrounded her, TakePart.com reports.
Jem Muldoon's insight:

Heartbreaking on so many levels:

 

What caused the girls to dropout, Hicks said, had to do with the stress outside of school and the schools themselves.

"In the poorest schools in America," Hicks passionately said, "there just isn't the opportunity and the level of engaged teaching and counseling that students really need to attach themselves to school."

Another issue was the standardized tests they had to take. "Speaking as a teacher, working on the ground with these students, the tests actually made things worse," she said.

"The teachers," Hicks said, "felt they had to focus on the test and in the end, it really hurt the students."

Although Blair didn't graduate, she's still determined to get her degree, as are the other girls. What was striking, Hicks said, was they did not want to give up.

If girls like Blair are to get the education they need and deserve, Hicks said, it must start at the top.

She said: "Addressing the glaring and extreme needs of poor and working class kids so they can have the same opportunity of privileged kids has to become a national priority."

It is a hoax!  Great analogy.......life is a musical thing and we should be dancing as we go.  Goals are wonderful and necessary ( to me) but we must be present and stay aware of the ride.  It is a ride.  

 

I have children who are young adults. Praying they heard my message and take their time, experiencing everything by being present. I hope they take as long as they need to be college learners; to stay learners for life.  Racing to the mortgage is an error many of us made.  What a mistake!
