I recommend that parents consider teaching their children the skills they will need to be more resilient in the face of stressful events. The opposite is true in East Asian countries. Children can turn any situation—whether they are sitting in a waiting room or walking to school—into an opportunity for play. They may also choose calming activities like reading a book, taking the dog for a walk, or simply lying under a tree and staring up at the clouds—all of which will allow them to approach the rest of their lives from a more centered, peaceful place.
Giving your kids downtime will help them to be more creative and innovative.

And just as importantly, it will help them learn to relax. Parents tend to identify their children by their strengths and the activities that come naturally to them. This can make them more anxious and depressed when faced with failure or challenges. But our brains are wired to learn new things.
We also tend to think that criticism is important for self-improvement. If a parent tells a child that she should try to be more outgoing, for example, the child may internalize that as a criticism of her naturally introverted personality. But research on self-criticism shows that it is basically self-sabotage. It makes you afraid of failure, which hurts your performance, makes you give up more easily, and leads to poor decision-making.
And self-criticism makes you more likely to be anxious and depressed when faced with a challenge. Instead, parents should encourage children to develop attitudes of self-compassion —which means treating yourself as you would a friend in times of failure or pain. It simply means that they learn not to beat themselves up. This mindset will allow her to excel in the face of challenge, develop new social skills, and learn from mistakes. Research shows that, from childhood onward, our social connections are the most important predictor of health , happiness , and even longevity.
Having positive relationships with other people is essential for our well-being, which in turn influences our intellectual abilities and ultimate success. Moreover, likability is one of the strongest predictors of success—regardless of actual skills. Children are naturally compassionate and kind.
