In every spiritual tradition, we find teachings that lead to a fulfilling life— such as generosity, kindness, honesty, determination, and patience. Today, a growing body of research from neuroscience and social psychology supports these teachings, offering insights into cultivating these virtues in ourselves and our families. Raising Resilience is a practical guide for parents and educators of children from preschool through adolescence, detailing ten universal principles for happy families and thriving children.

In the follow-up to his acclaimed Growing Up Mindful, Dr. Christopher Willard bridges the latest science with Eastern wisdom to explore ourselves and share with our children. Topics include: cultivating kindness, gratitude, and generosity; simplifying family life; promoting healthy relationships with technology, sex, and drugs; teaching children about privilege; working with perfectionism; utilizing the science of self-compassion; practicing patience and grit; and much more.

CHRISTOPHER WILLARD, PSYD, is a clinical psychologist and consultant specializing in bringing mindfulness into education and psychotherapy. The author of Child’s Mind (Parallax, 2010) and other books on the topic, Dr. Willard lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts and teaches at Harvard Medical School and Lesley University.
