Help SOS unit 025. outcome 6.2. Analyse the importance of supporting resilience in children and young people.

I have done a list of ways to support self confidence, self esteem and resilience but not sure what to write about analysing the importance of supporting resilience. Don't know how to start it or word it. Can anyone help please. Thanks in advance.

Default Unit 025. 6.2.

I did this a while back now. This is what I wrote. It has been approved by my assessor. Hope it helps.

6.2. Analyse the importance of supporting resilience in children and young people.


Resilience is the ability to deal with the ups and downs of life and how to deal with any setbacks. Research shows that children/ young people with high levels of self esteem and self confidence are likely to be more resilient and be better at dealing with life as they get older. Resilience is based on children having -:

· Secure early attachments.
· Confidence from being part of a loving family.
· A good sense of self-identity.
· The ability to act independently.
· The confidence to try new things.

Children need secure early attachments to support their emotional development, as they may find it difficult to form relationships in later life.
Children need to develop a sense of identity to feel confident. They need to feel valued. Being part of a loving, caring, kind, supportive family helps a child, giving them self confidence, self esteem and resilience thus leading to a good sense of self identity.
Having a positive outlook at school i.e. having self-confidence and self-esteem gives children the choice to build independence. Showing expected behaviour by example i.e. being a good role model, and valuing their work and achievements will all help build up a good relationship with a child. This will all help in leading to better resilience.
How children relate to other people depends on their emotional well being and resilience. As children develop they begin to interact with others. Children who feel good about themselves will be able to relate to others in a more positive way. This in turn will make them feel better emotionally and could help their confidence, in-group situations. It is important that practitioners help children to feel positive about themselves. High self-esteem helps children overcome set backs and cope with difficult situations such as disappointment and hurt feelings. If a child is happy and has high self-esteem this makes the process of relating to others easier. Low self-esteem may mean that a child may start to compare themselves with other children in the group. This can affect their emotional well being if they think that they aren’t doing as well as others.
Children’s communication will depend a lot on their confidence. There are things that can inhibit this e.g. personality, i.e. shy children, life experiences and whether they socialise with others. In order to build their confidence these children will need a lot of positive feedback, praise and encouragement.
You should never judge a child negatively by saying things such as ‘that’s all I would expect from you’. This could damage their self-esteem and confidence, making them less resilient and less likely to want to join in for fear of negative comments.
If you label a child rather than their behaviour, i.e. saying you are naughty instead of saying that is naughty behaviour he/she only learns that he/she is naughty and this will lower their self-esteem. If you tell the child that what they did was wrong and explain why, they will develop understanding and learn right from wrong. Commenting on behaviour helps confidence but commenting on the child can lower self-esteem.

When you show disapproval for the behaviour not the child, you show children that they are still accepted, liked and valued.
Confidence and self-esteem can be damaged when negative input is given to a child. . This could be from adults or other children.
By encouraging children to try new activities this may help with their confidence.
Asking them to participate, showing/explaining to them how to do something if they’re unsure and giving reassurance during a new activity will help. Giving praise and encouragement with each step will make them feel that they can actually achieve something they were unsure of initially. If a child could has their own idea of what a finished project should look like, and this is not achieved they may feel frustrated or lose their confidence in what they can achieve. Support them by giving praise and encouraging comments for what they have achieved so far. Explaining why it may not have happened as planned could ensure feelings are protected. You could show empathy, work together and give suggestions on how it may be possible to complete the project thus achieving a successful outcome. By allowing the child to lead with any new ideas, this will help with confidence and self esteem as they are acting independently.

Really stuck on this task, analyse why it is important to support resilience in children and young people and use examples within your analysis to support this.
Has any one got any pointers on how to start it off or what to talk about?

Thanks (:
