Why is it important for early childhood educators to have an understanding of resiliency? How could knowledge of a child’s risk and protective factors change your attitude and your behavior toward a child or her family?
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
I think that it is important for early childhood educators to have an understanding of resiliency because it is extremely important to know what cultural background and what living environment they grow up in. This helps determine the risk factors and stress resistance. According (Ellis,2009 pg 45) Children differ enormously in how they respond to adversity, with genetics, physiology, and temperament. I think that this knowledge can change my attitude and behavior to a child or her family by understanding the background. It helps to encourage the child to develop a certain relationship and model by example.Ellis, B. (2009, Spring). Educating children who differ in susceptibility to rearing. Florida Humanist Journal, 3, 1316.
